Supporting Best Practices for Healthy Moms Act

This bill requires the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to publish and periodically update guidance for hospitals, freestanding birth centers, and other maternal care providers on ways to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity under Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

The CMS must also report on the Medicaid payment methodologies that apply to facility transfers of pregnant women.
