Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP)What is the Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP)?
MIHP is a program for all Michigan women with Medicaid health insurance who are pregnant and all infants with Medicaid. It is a benefit of their insurance. MIHP provides support to promote healthy pregnancies, good birth outcomes, and healthy infants.
Throughout the state, MIHPs are administered in rural, urban and native communities through federally qualified health centers, hospital based clinics and private providers as well as through local and regional public health departments. Services include:
·Maternal and infant health and psychosocial assessment completed by nurse or social worker
·Registered Nurse and Licensed Social Worker development of beneficiary care plans
·Coordination of MIHP services with the beneficiary's medical care provider and Medicaid Health Plan (who assist and supplement that care)
·Registered Nurse, Licensed Social Worker, Registered Dietitian and Infant Mental Health Specialist home or office visits provided with interventions based on the beneficiary's plan of care
·Transportation services arranged if needed
·Referrals are made to local community services (e.g., mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence, basic needs assistance) as needed
·Referral to local childbirth education or parenting classes
