Pregnancy-Related Services


What is the Pregnancy-Related Services (PRS) Program?

PRS is a package of services available to all pregnant women who receive Medicaid. The services promote a healthy pregnancy with positive birth outcomes. These services are provided in addition to regular prenatal care.


What are the benefits?

Quality prenatal care will:

  • Begin from date of identification of pregnancy through 60 days after birth or miscarriage
  • Increase the mother’s well-being during pregnancy
  • Help prevent complications and minimize discomfort
  • Help identify danger signals for early labor or miscarriage
  • Increase the likelihood of having a healthy baby
  • Reduce the risk of birth defects
  • Provide education on how to take care of the baby

What if I am high risk?
The PRS program will pay for home visits and monitoring devices if your doctor determines you have a high-risk pregnancy and home visits are medically necessary.


Do I qualify?
PRS is available to all pregnant women who are on
Medicaid. If a woman is on Medicaid and thinks she may be pregnant, PRS can provide transportation and pay for the pregnancy test.
