Prenatal Care Coordination: Member Information

Prenatal care coordination helps pregnant people get the supports and services they need during and right after pregnancy. 

Find out what you need to know as a Medicaid member using the prenatal care coordination benefit. To learn more, view the Prenatal Care Coordination Brochure, P-01046

Using your ForwardHealth card

If you are a new Medicaid member who would like to get prenatal care coordination services, we’ll send you a ForwardHealth card in the mail. If you had BadgerCare Plus or Medicaid in the past, you won’t get a new card. You can use the same card you used before.

Need a card? Go to your ACCESS account or call ForwardHealth Member Services at 800-362-3002.

Front of Forward Health Card

Your ForwardHealth card includes your name. It also has a 10-digit number and magnetic stripe. There is a place for you to sign your name as soon as you get it. If you need help, the Member Services phone number is on the card.

You must show your card when you go to the doctor. You also need it when you pick up medicine at the pharmacy.

A provider does not need your ForwardHealth ID (the 10-digit number on your card) unless they are providing you with health services. Do not give out your ForwardHealth ID until you have chosen the right provider for you. You will give the prenatal care coordination agency your ForwardHealth ID number after you choose them and they help you fill out the questionnaire and create a care plan.
