During pregnancy, oral health care is essential, yet often underutilized — especially for people enrolled in Medicaid. This dashboard provides information related to Medicaid expansion and eligibility during pregnancy and postpartum, preterm birth rates, and infant mortality rates by state.

Policymakers, administrators, and advocates can use this tool to examine Medicaid expansion and eligibility in their state and ensure they are providing coverage that supports the oral health and overall health of pregnant people and their babies.
