Birthing Options Program
You can choose to have services provided in a birth center, in your home, or in the hospital by a midwife. Midwives must be Medicaid approved health care providers to participate in this program. Talk to your midwife about problems that may happen if you deliver your baby outside of a hospital.

If you choose to have birthing services outside of a hospital, you have the right and responsibility to:

  • Receive an informed consent from the Midwife about problems that may happen if you deliver your baby outside of a hospital and;
  • Ask your midwife if they have malpractice insurance.

Classes for Pregnant Women
Getting ready for the birth of your new baby is an important time in your life. UnitedHealthcare of New Mexico wants to make sure you are ready for the big day. Childbirth classes are available to you and can help answer some questions you may have about the birth of your baby.

Quality Improvement Program

UnitedHealthcare wants you to get the best care and service. That's why we have a Quality Management (QM) Program. Our QM Program helps us learn what we can do better. Then we use it to improve. Our QM program has several member health programs.

These programs:

  • Help people with health conditions like asthma or chronic breathing conditions, diabetes, and heart disease.
  • Help pregnant women have healthy babies.
  • Improve patient safety.
  • Make sure members are happy with the plan.
  • Make sure doctors and other health care professionals meet our standards.
  • Help people stay healthy with shots, screenings and tests.

We use national standards to see how well our QM program works. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) writes the standards. NCQA is an independent agency. It compares the quality programs of health plans. We measure our progress meeting our goals using NCQA's:

  • Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®)
  • Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) SURE
