Pregnancy and menopause support are essential employee benefits

Your workforce is made up of a diverse set of individuals, many of whom experience or support people going through pregnancy and menopause. Although specialty care offerings in these areas have historically been excluded from healthcare benefits, today’s employers are embracing solutions to support their employees' full spectrum of health. When your organization has comprehensive solutions, it reinforces a commitment to your workforce and your Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. In recognition of Women’s Health Month and Mental Health Awareness Month, learn about offerings that can support your employees’ total health and well-being.

Everyone deserves equal access to quality healthcare. “Women’s health needs are unique and require unique solutions designed around them,” said Steve Tringale, President, Mass General Brigham Health Plan. “The women’s health portfolio is consistent with our strategy to put members at the center of their healthcare and our historical commitment to supporting under-represented health needs and communities.”

Our women’s health portfolio covers the full spectrum of women’s health needs, such as pregnancy and post-partum support, menopause, and mental health. Learn more about our offerings below:

Maternal and reproductive health resources

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the maternal mortality rate is three times higher for Black patients than white patients. Data shows that improving maternal and newborn health is especially important in reducing health disparities.

Our maternal health solution provides on-demand pregnancy, postpartum, and loss​support. Eligible commercial members have access to a digital platform that offers 24/7 live chat with advocates, including certified and licensed doulas, midwives, and nurses​, as well as online community support and relevant, evidence-based education. 

Initiative on menopause support

More than 1.3 million women in the United States experience menopause each year. In addition to physical effects, menopause can come with career and economic impacts. Mass General Brigham Health Plan has responded with an innovative approach to supporting women through their menopause journeys. Our digital solution provides research-backed expertise, personalized coaching, and peer support to help women thrive during perimenopause, menopause, and beyond.

“Mass General Brigham Health Plan remains committed to inclusivity and addressing the biases that still exist around maternal and menopausal healthcare. As a health system, we aim to help overcome those inequities through inclusive care. We are offering innovative programs that meet today’s members wherever they are at different stages of life to break down barriers and connect them to critical resources and community support,” said Lindsay Jubelt, MD, MS, Chief Population Health Officer, Mass General Brigham, and Chief Medical Officer of Mass General Brigham Health Plan
