Prenatal Case Management for Pregnant Women

Case management services are available for MO Health Net eligible pregnant women who are “at risk” of poor pregnancy outcomes and are intended to reduce infant mortality and low birth weight by encouraging adequate prenatal care and adherence to the recommendations of the prenatal caregiver.

Risk Appraisal

A risk appraisal is a set of criteria to be used in identifying pregnant women who are at risk of poor pregnancy outcomes, and children who have or are at risk of developing, physical, psychosocial and/or developmental problems.

Any eligible pregnant woman, who meets any one of the identified risk factors, as determined by the administration of the Risk Appraisal for Pregnant Women, is eligible for prenatal case management services. The prenatal case management program seeks to encourage healthy behavior for mothers in order to deliver healthy babies. A nurse case manager follows the mother’s health care monthly throughout her pregnancy and provides two follow-up visits after her baby is delivered.
