Pregnancy Care Management is a free and voluntary program available to pregnant women who qualify for Medicaid. Care managers and prenatal care providers work together to help women achieve a healthy pregnancy.
Pregnant women, eligible for Medicaid, that meet certain conditions may qualify for services. Examples of conditions include having had a preterm baby, a chronic illness such as diabetes, or other concerns, such as wanting help to quit smoking.
