Quality Care for Moms and Babies Act

This bill directs the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to:

  • identify and publish a recommended core set of maternal and infant quality measures for women and children, as specified by the bill;
  • publish an initial core set of any such measures applicable to mothers and infants eligible under Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP);
  • establish a Maternal and Infant Quality Measurement Program; and

The CMS may make grants to eligible entities for:

  • expanded activities of existing collaboratives; and
  • maternity and infant care initiatives within established state and regional quality collaboratives that are not focused exclusively on maternity care.
