The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is announcing new accountability measures aimed at preventing fraud and improving health outcomes for child care coordination, a Medicaid post-birth benefit created under state law to address health disparities in southeastern Wisconsin. Child care coordination and prenatal care coordination (PNCC) provide prenatal and post-birth services to support vulnerable families at high risk of a negative health outcome—a critical program designed to improve infant and maternal health and reduce infant and maternal mortality.
