Physicians Health Plan has entered into a partnership with physicians to promote education and individualized services to pregnant members, new moms and babies. The program is called Healthy Mom Healthy Baby.
The Healthy Mom Healthy Baby program encourages all pregnant members to: Make an appointment to see your physician within the first twelve weeks of your pregnancy; Make sure you have your screening lab work done, especially Hepatitis B screening; See your physician for your post partum appointment within 21-56 days after delivery; Set up your baby's visit upon discharge for immunization visits.
Services that PHP offers include:
