Effective January 1, 2023, Michigan Medicaid began reimbursing for doula services provided to individuals covered by or eligible for Medicaid Insurance.

Doula services include personal support to birthing persons and families at any point during pregnancy and up to 12-months postpartum. This includes emotional and physical support, provided during pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period.

 

Pursuant to federal regulations, doula services must be recommended by a licensed healthcare provider.

IMPORTANCE OF EXTENDED COVERAGE

Extending postpartum care for 12 months significantly enhances maternal health by ensuring continued access to essential services, including doula support, which is crucial for navigating the postpartum period effectively. It addresses healthcare disparities by providing equitable access to all birthing people, aiming to improve health outcomes by reducing maternal mortality and morbidity rates. This holistic support system underscores the importance of extending care in fostering a safer healthier postpartum.
