Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP)

The Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) is an enhanced obstetrical program for Medi-Cal eligible pregnant women that includes health education, nutrition, and psychosocial assessments and interventions. Certified providers have submitted applications to the State Maternal Child Health Branch which have been approved, indicating that they meet all Title 22 CPSP requirements. Any Medi-Cal provider who is in good standing with Medi-Cal and the Medical Board, and is licensed to provide prenatal care, is eligible to apply as a CPSP provider.

Disclaimer: "This is not a list of all approved CPSP providers in Los Angeles County. It contains only those CPSP providers in Los Angeles County (excluding the cities of Pasadena and Long Beach) who are currently offering CPSP services."

To view a list of CPSP providers offering CPSP services in Los Angeles County, excluding Long Beach and Pasadena, click in the corresponding Service Planning Area (SPA) on the map below. These providers should offer CPSP support services to all Medi-Cal pregnant women in their practices. If a provider on this list is identified as not providing CPSP currently, please call the CPSP Administration office at (213) 639-6419. Patients enrolled in a managed care health plan should contact their plan for referral to a contracting physician.

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. .
