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.
