5.2 - Eligibility

BBO services are to be offered to individuals eligible according to the guidelines below:

  • High risk as determined by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services Medicaid claims data indicating Medicaid individuals with a prior poor birth outcome; or
  • High risk as determined by the presence of two or more risk factors as identified by the 707G Cornerstone assessment or one risk factor when approved by the MCH Nurse Consultant.

If existing caseloads are at maximum capacity, individuals are to be enrolled in Family Case Management as a prenatal client. Once an opening is available in Better Birth Outcomes, the client can be transferred from FCM to BBO.
