Public health prenatal program

Public Health Prenatal Program

  • Prenatal Care is a core public health service that serves as the primary strategy for reducing infant mortality and improving birth outcomes.

  • Prenatal Care is included in the Core Public Health Services and core public health block grant funds should be used to provide routine prenatal services.

  • There will no longer be a Federal allocation to 803 for prenatal services, so LHD’s will have to plan and monitor closely the expenses to 803 from their core public health funding.

  • In the PSRS system, program-eligible patients will be assigned to Payor code 7.

  • Maternity funding may be accessed through local funds, Medicaid and other payors, or the core public health block grant. However, Core public health funding should be used for the Prenatal Program eligible women who have income at or below 185% FPL and have no other payor source (i.e., are not Medicaid eligible).

  • Minimum required prenatal covered services will continue to be listed in the Prenatal/Maternity Database, but LHD’s can make local decisions about judiciously covering other services for these income-eligible patients according to their local budget and patient needs.

Public Health Prenatal Program

  • All local health departments must assure that prenatal care is available for all pregnant women in their jurisdiction, either directly or through referral. Contracts are to fulfill that assurance.


Three types of prenatal contracts

Three types of Prenatal Contracts

Below are the three types of contracts often utilized for Maternity Services in the Public Health Prenatal Program. The prenatal contract types are:

  • Personnel contracts for onsite provider for prenatal care clinical services at LHD (Template 1)

  • Referrals to providers for prenatal care clinical services in their office setting (Template 2)

  • Prenatal outpatient testing in hospitals if not available in the health department or contracted physician office (optional, depending on local needs – Template 3)

    *Each type of contract has a template with examples of complete contract language.


Required contract language

Required Contract Language

Health departments may adapt recommended language in the contract templates, but all prenatal contracts must include the following elements (4):

  • Prenatal care providers must be licensed in Kentucky and Board Certified in Obstetrics, Family Practice, or Midwifery . Any services by a midwife must be provided by a nurse midwife. If prenatal care is not under the direction of an obstetrician, an obstetrician shall be available for consultation. Providers must act within their legal scope of practice and assure they have professional liability insurance for the services they provide.

  • Prenatal care, regardless of which provider is delivering the care, must follow the most current guidelines of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and the PHPR when care is delivered in health department facilities.


Required contract language1

Required Contract Language

Health departments may adapt suggested language in the contract templates, but all prenatal contracts must include the following elements:

3. Contracts must specify compensation for services; compensation for services to any provider shall be at the current Medicaid rate or a lesser agreed upon amount. That payment is to be considered as “payment in full” for the particular service; the patient shall not be billed for these services.

4. Billing procedures and required documentation must be specified in the contract. These may vary according to local arrangements. Examples are provided in the Templates
