Nemours is excited to release its new “Washington State’s Effort to Improve Maternal and Infant Outcomes in Medicaid Using Pay for Success Financing” brief.
The Washington Health Care Authority, the agency that oversees the state’s Medicaid program, has been exploring using pay for success financing, an impact investment strategy, to make a decision about whether to expand services in Medicaid that would improve maternal and infant outcomes. This case study highlights the key accelerators and barriers that Washington has confronted as it determines whether it should move forward with pay for success financing to pilot and determine the return on investment of group prenatal care services for its Medicaid recipients.
