New Vaccine Benefits for Presumptive Eligibility (PE) Program: Hepatitis, Influenza and Tdap

Effective for dates of service on or after June 1, 2015, qualified providers participating in the PE program may be reimbursed for Hep. A, Hep. B, Influenza and Tdap vaccines. Click here for Medi-Cal Bulletin update.

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.

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 call 213-639-6419.
