2021 Perinatal Care Guidelines
MHQP’s 2021 guidelines were developed by a collaborative group of Massachusetts healthcare organizations. These are recommendations for providing perinatal care to pregnant persons from the general population. The guidelines should not supplant clinical judgment or the needs of individual patients. These guidelines are intended as quality-practice recommendations and are not intended as a description of benefits, conditions of payment, or any other legal requirements of any particular health plan or payer. Each health plan or payer makes its own determination of coverage and benefits. In the event that these practice recommendations are inconsistent with any applicable laws or regulations, such laws or regulations take precedence.
