Project Description

The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) will implement the Perinatal High Risk Case Management/Infant Services System (PHRM/ISS) program in 15 counties throughout the state including  counties in the Northeast (Monroe, Pontotoc, Union); Northwest (Coahoma, Panola); Central East (Lauderdale, Neshoba, Noxubee); Central West (Sharkey, Yazoo); Southeast(Jones); Southwest (Adams, Jefferson); and, Coastal counties (George, Harrison). PHRM/ISS provides enhanced case management services for expectant and parenting teens ages 17-19 enrolled in high school, a GED program, or an alternative school program who do not otherwise qualify for Medicaid-reimbursed case management services, and their infants (up to one year old). MSDH will also develop a comprehensive resource directory that will help link expectant and parenting teens to needed resources. Through these efforts, MSDH aims to: increase expectant and parenting teens’ access to youth-friendly, high-quality medical, social, and educational services that support their physical and emotional health; increase provider capacity to deliver youth-friendly, high-quality services to expectant and parenting teens; and provide or link expectant and parenting teens to services that improve health, social, and educational outcomes.
