Expecting a baby? We offer several programs to support you every step of this exciting journey.

CenteringPregnancy: A unique option for prenatal care

CenteringPregnancy® offers an opportunity for pregnant women to connect outside of the exam room and in a comfortable group setting for their prenatal care. Together with a doctor, mothers discuss pregnancy concerns, infant care, breastfeeding and other important health topics in order to prepare for all stages of pregnancy. Additional benefits include:

  • More time with a doctor
  • Support and friendship with other pregnant women
  • Fun and interactive way to learn care skills during pregnancy, birth and after baby arrives

The CenteringPregnancy program is offered at Covenant Community Care, InterCare Community Health Network, Hackley Community Care, Grace Health and Spectrum Health. Contact your doctor to learn more and sign up.

Maternal Infant Health Program

The Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) is a free program before, during and after your pregnancy to help you have a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. The MIHP is free for Medicaid members and provides regular in-home visits by a nurse or social worker. MIHP services include:

  • Free transportation to doctor appointments, WIC and childbirth/parent education classes
  • In-home nurse visits
  • Help getting prenatal care
  • Answers to your questions about pregnancy and caring for your baby
  • Help with health problems that could affect your pregnancy

Maternity dental benefits

Your Medicaid plan includes dental care during pregnancy. Pregnant members can see dentists who are part of the Delta Dental EPO or Dencap network and may also receive transportation to and from dental appointments. If you're pregnant and want to receive dental services, make sure to do the following:

If you're pregnant and want to use your dental services, you need to:

  1. Notify Priority Health Choice, Inc. of your pregnancy and due date by calling our Customer Service at 888.975.8102 (TTY users call 711).
  2. Notify your Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) caseworker of your pregnancy and due date. If you know their phone number, you can call them directly. If not, you can call your County DHHS office or the Medicaid Beneficiary Hotline at 800.642.3195 (TTY users call 711) to connect with your case worker.

Update to Medicaid Postpartum Health and Dental Benefits as of April 1, 2022

There has been a recent update to the Priority Health Choice, Inc. Pregnant Women’s Coverage. Postpartum health and dental coverage has been extended to 12 months. This means if you are a Medicaid member who is pregnant or becomes pregnant, you have access to health and dental services during your entire pregnancy, as well as up to 12 months after you deliver (Your due date + 12 months).

Diaper incentive program

If you are a Priority Health member and participate in the Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) and Nurse-Family Partnership during pregnancy, you can get two free bags of diapers for attending your postpartum visit. As a new mom, this visit with your OB provider is to check in on your health after delivering. All you have to do is choose a size, and the diapers will be delivered right to your home.

How does it work?

Priority Health partners with J&B Medical Supply to deliver diaper packages right to your door. A Priority Health Medicaid team member will call you to set up orders and confirm delivery details.

More savings

Once you join our diaper incentive program, you’ll be eligible for even more savings through J&B Medical Supply. A Priority Health Medicaid team member will send you a discount code for $7.50 off your next diaper order of $40 or more.

Doula Services

A doula is a non-clinical trained professional who provides emotional, physical and educational support to a mother who is pregnant, is in labor or has recently given birth. They work with a maternity care team to help women have a positive and safe birth, but do not provide any medical care. Their purpose is to help expecting mothers take charge of their pregnancy health, ensure a comfortable birthing experience and provide support through the first weeks of postpartum.

Doula services are covered in your Priority Health Medicaid health plan. To find a doula in your plan's network, use our Find a Doctor tool > click Doctor by Specialty > search "doula". For help with finding a doula, contact Priority Health Customer Service at 888.975.8102.
