History:

The Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) provides a wide range of culturally competent services to Medi-Cal pregnant women, from conception through 60 days postpartum.  In addition to standard obstetric services, women receive enhanced services in the areas of nutrition, psychosocial, and health education. The Legislature enacted CPSP in 1984 in response to the OB Access Project, which found that a comprehensive approach reduced both low birth weight rates and health care costs in women and infants. CPSP became a Medi-Cal benefit in 1987. Medi-Cal providers who provide services to pregnant women may apply to become a CPSP provider. Medi-Cal Managed Health Care Plans are required to provide access to CPSP services for pregnant Medi-Cal eligible recipients..
 


Mission:

Through effective and collaborative teamwork, CPSP promotes and coordinates the delivery of early, continuous and quality comprehensive perinatal services to pregnant and postpartum women and their infants by public and private obstetrical providers.


Vision:

All pregnant and postpartum women in Los Angeles County receive comprehensive perinatal health services through an integrated and seamless system designed to optimize maternal and child health outcomes.  


Goals:

  • To decrease the incidence of low birth weight in infants
  • To improve the outcome of every pregnancy
  • To give every baby a healthy start in life
  • To lower health care costs by preventing catastrophic and chronic illness in infants and children

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.

Updated Influenza Toolkit

In December, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) updated its "Influenza Immunization during Pregnancy" toolkit. The toolkit includes the ACOG committee opinion on influenza vaccination during pregnancy, questions asked frequently by patients and obstetrician–gynecologists, and other resources for pregnant women and their providers.
