Pregnancy Care Management
Pregnancy Care Management (PCM)
Pregnancy Care Management is a statewide program in North Carolina promoting healthy mothers and healthy babies who have Medicaid. This program provides care management services by a social worker or nurse for high risk women during pregnancy and two months after delivery.
High Risk Criteria

How Will I Know if I am High Risk?
When you have your first visit with your prenatal care provider, he or she will help you determine if you have any risk factors. If you have risk factors, you will be referred to a pregnancy care manager.
