Who Can Be A CPSP Provider?

Any physician, certified nurse midwife, nurse practitioner, 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.

Introducing Perinatal Food Group Recall (PFGR)

As of January 1, 2015, the LA County CPSP Program will replace the Perinatal Food Frequency Questionnaire (PFFQ) with the Perinatal Food Group Recall (PFGR). The PFGR asks questions about a client’s usual daily diet and allows the CPSP practitioner to document education and advice directly on the form itself. Please download and review the PFGR, the instructions, and MyPlate for Moms (English & Spanish). If you have any questions, please contact Thelma Hayes at 213-639-6423. .
