In 2020, Tennessee was one of 10 states to receive the Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) Model grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The purpose of the model is to assist states in combating the nation’s opioid crisis and address fragmentation in the care of pregnant and postpartum Medicaid beneficiaries with opioid use disorder (OUD).
The Division of TennCare and Vanderbilt University Medical Center partnered to form Firefly, Tennessee's MOM program which seeks to improve outcomes for women with opioid use disorder and their infants beginning in pregnancy and extending to one year postpartum. The model, which officially begins accepting patients from Middle Tennessee in July 2021, coordinates clinical care and integrates services critical for health, well-being, and recovery.
