Who Can Be A CPSP Provider?

Any physician, certified nurse midwife, hospital, community clinic, or medical group who provides prenatal care, has a valid Medi-Cal provider number, and is in good standing with state licensing and regulatory agencies can submit a CPSP application. Once finalized at the local CPSP office, the application is forwarded to the California Dept. of Public Health for final approval.


Apply to Be a CPSP Provider:

Prior to completing and submitting a CPSP Application, please contact the CPSP office at (213) 639-6419 to schedule a site visit. No applications will be accepted before a site visit has been conducted.


Reimbursement for CPSP Services:

  • CPSP Services provided to women who are eligible for fee-for-service Medi-Cal are reimbursed via the regular Medi-Cal billing process. Services are reimbursed at $33.64/hr. for individual services and $11.24/patient/hr. for group classes. Additional bonuses are also available.

The training and parking are free!

Registration information for 2017 will be distributed per our CPSP provider email list.

Zika Virus Update

Zika is a mosquito-borne virus. In Brazil, the site of a large ongoing Zika outbreak, there has been a substantial increase in the number of babies born with microcephaly (small head circumference). Please click here for important information for obstetric providers and pregnant women. 

Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

Pertussis is on the rise. We strongly recommend that CPSP providers offer/refer pregnant patients for Tdap during 3rd trimester to protect newborns from pertussis. Visit CPSP website or to learn more about what your office can do to prevent pertussis.
