Survey: Improve Services for Pregnant Women with Substance Use Disorders DUE 4/12


The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing is seeking stakeholder feedback via this short survey to inform the Department’s proposal for the Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) Model.

The Department is in the process of applying for the MOM Model from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. This cooperative agreement provides funding opportunities for selected state Medicaid agencies to test whether payments that support evidence-based, coordinated care delivery for pregnant and postpartum women with opioid use disorder and their infants can reduce Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program expenditures, and improve the quality of care for this population.

The group identified an initial list of potential interventions that will be shared with the larger group and other interested stakeholders through a survey as a way of prioritizing interventions.

In addition, the survey will seek to understand the work you are already doing (or that you’ve heard about) related to maternal opioid use in Colorado and what data or metrics you might have that could support the application and work. 

Please take a moment to respond to this survey and feel free to share with other partners. We are seeking to have all responses by Friday 4/12 by 5 PM.

In additional to sharing your expertise, please feel empowered to pass along this survey to others with key perspectives on maternal opioid use.

Please contact Susanna Snyder (susanna.snyder@state.co.us) with any questions.
