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

  • High risk as determined by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services Medicaid claims data indicating Medicaid women 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, women are to be enrolled in Family Case Management and followed as prenatal clients, until such time as there are available slots in the Better Birth Outcomes program.
