Comprehensive Perinatal Services Provider Program
What is the Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP)?
Low-income women are at higher risk for problems related to pregnancy and delivery, including the delivery. A major challenge is the delivery of low-birth-weight infants. These infants have an increased risk of death and permanent disability, involving major costs to society.
The Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) is a Medi-Cal program that provides a set of services for eligible low-income pregnant and postpartum women. Services are delivered by enrolled CPSP providers. Pregnancy and birth outcomes improve when pregnant women receive CPSP-enhanced services of nutrition, psychosocial and health education, in addition to routine obstetric care.
Case coordination is provided to CPSP clients to ensure enhanced services are appropriate for their needs and delivered in an efficient manner. This approach allows the client to receive integrated care addressing her total needs and promoting her involvement in her health care.
