As of July 1, 2023, the Perinatal Services Coordinator is no longer assisting with CPSP applications or can give support to providers. Please refer to CDPH CPSP for assistance.
The Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) was created in 1987 to reduce morbidity and mortality among low-income pregnant women and their infants in California. CPSP is a Medi-Cal program that provides a model of enhanced obstetric services for eligible low-income pregnant and postpartum women. CPSP provides individuals with obstetric, psychosocial, nutrition, and health education services, and related case coordination during pregnancy and up to 60 days postpartum.
The goals of the CPSP program are:
- To decrease the incidence of low birth weight infants
- To improve the outcome of every pregnancy
- To give every baby a healthy start in life
- To lower health care costs by preventing catastrophic and chronic illness in infants and children
