Prenatal Care Coordination
Prenatal care coordination is a Wisconsin Medicaid and BadgerCare Plus benefit that helps pregnant people get the supports and services they need during and right after pregnancy. The goal of prenatal care coordination is to connect pregnant people to medical, social, and educational services to improve birth outcomes.
Through prenatal care coordination, you can choose a prenatal care coordination agency who will:
- Learn about your current health, strengths, and needs
- Help you get the supports and services you need
- Respect your choices and ideas
- Meet you at a time and place that you choose
Once you have chosen an agency to work with, they will work with you to complete a pregnancy questionnaire that will assess your needs. Then, they will work with you to create a care plan that includes supports and services based on your needs. Those supports and services could include:
- Health care appointments
- Classes related to health education
- Classes related to nutrition during pregnancy
To learn more, view the Prenatal Care Coordination Brochure, P-01046.
