How We Help
We want to help you have a healthy pregnancy. We will send you small gifts, books, and brochures that will help you have a healthy pregnancy. We can also invite you to events that may be in your area, such as an MHS Baby Shower. And, if you have special health needs during your pregnancy, we can match you up with an MHS nurse Care Manager.

At MHS, we care about your health and the health of your baby. We have three programs for MHS Hoosier Healthwise and CHIP members who are pregnant or have just had a baby. By joining these program, you will be eligible for more CentAccount rewards.

MHS Care Managers will talk to you and suggest the program that is right for you based on your medical history and your doctor’s care plan.

For mom and baby during pregnancy:

Start Smart for Your Baby®

As a part of the MHS Start Smart program, an MHS Nurse Care Manager will talk with you throughout your pregnancy to identify any needs you may have. Your Care Manager can also work with you and your doctor to be sure you get the support you need.
To join this program, tell us you’re pregnant and that you’d like to join this program. See our instructions at the top of this page on how to get started.

MHS’ Special Deliveries

This program is for women who have previously had complicated pregnancies. And, for women who have delivered pre-term babies. We will match you with a Registered Nurse with high risk Obstetrical experience who can educate and support you throughout your pregnancy. The nurse will work with you and your doctor to develop a plan of care to help prevent or treat complications you may have with your pregnancy.

First Year of Life
