Promoting Maternal and Child Health: Virginia’s Dental Benefit for Pregnant Women

Dental care during the perinatal period influences health outcomes for both the parent and child, and can reduce expensive medical care that results from lack of care. Virginia added a pregnancy dental benefit in 2015. 

With nearly half of pregnancies in the United States financed by Medicaid, Virginia shows how states can play an important role in providing access to dental care for pregnant women through their Medicaid programs. 

This National Academy for State Health Policy fact sheet - supported by a cooperative agreement with HRSA - provides an overview of the steps Virginia took to expand and manage dental Medicaid coverage for pregnant women.

CDC’s Million Hearts® initiative recognized Philadelphia FIGHT, a HRSA-funded health center, for their outstanding efforts to prioritize hypertension treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Once stay-at-home orders began, Philadelphia FIGHT’s staff took several actions to support patients with hypertension challenges, including:

  • Calling patients who were taking medications for chronic health conditions
  • Delivering medications to patients who were unable to receive at-home delivery through their pharmacy
  • Helping an additional 1,200 patients manage medication concerns, such as transferring prescriptions to other pharmacies when needed
  • Teaching patients over the phone how to use their at-home blood pressure monitors

Visit the Million Hearts® website to read previous success stories and find evidence-based tools to improve hypertension control.
