All PHRM/ISS participation is voluntary and offered through a multi-disciplinary team of a nurse, social worker and nutritionist with at least a once a month face to face contact. Medicaid beneficiaries, who are identified with one or more positive risk factors on the PHRM/ISS Perinatal Screening Form (see web site), are eligible to participate in this voluntary case management/home visiting program.
