CVS Health’s Aetna on July 18 said it invested $150,000 in a program “aimed at eradicating preventable infant death and improving birth outcomes” in the state of Kansas. The investment will make the Kansas University Endowment Association’s BabyTalk program available to Kansas Medicaid beneficiaries later this year. BabyTalk consists of six two-hour classes covering healthy pregnancies, plus infant and postpartum care. It also provides infant safety items such as car seats and carriers at no cost. Aetna currently serves 151,069 Medicaid and CHIP lives in Kansas, about 30.1% of the state market.
