Family Case Management (FCM)
The Family Case Management Program (FCM) is a statewide program in Illinois that helps income–eligible clients with a pregnant woman, infant, or young child to obtain the health care services and other assistance they may need to have a healthy pregnancy and to promote the child’s healthy development.
The goals of the Family Case Management Program are to:
The program serves pregnant women and infants in families that are below 200% of the federal poverty level. Family Case Management works to develop close working relationships with physicians and other medical providers of care.
The FCM program also collaborates with community agencies to address barriers in accessing medical services, child care, transportation, housing, food, mental health needs and substance abuse services.
Family Case Management services also include serving as authorized agents for completing Medicaid Presumptive Eligibility (MPE) applications for pregnant women, and assisting families in completing All Kids applications for their children, which will allow them to access medical care in their community.
Services are provided by bachelor’s prepared, bilingual case managers with special training and supervision provided by a registered nurse with advanced education in public health and maternal-child health care.
