Management is a statewide program funded by the Department of Human services.
The goals are to reduce the rate of infant mortality, promote wellness and healthy
lifestyles in pregnant women and children up to the age of 2 years.
Case Management services
include: supportive personal contact, health education, assessment of needs, referral
to other social service agencies and medical services.
Free pregnancy testing is
offered during clinic hours only. If a pregnant woman qualifies, we will complete
an application for a temporary medical card. She will then be referred to the
Department of Human Services for ongoing medical assistance or we will assist
her in completing a Kid Care application.
The Henderson County Health Department is a Kid Care Application agent for
the Illinois Kid Care Health Insurance Program. This service provides assistance
with completing the application and sending it to the state of Illinois.
Pre-natal High Risk Visits
Physicians and hospitals refer infants deemed at high risk to the health
department. These clients receive home visits, physical and developmental assessments
and follow-up education on regular basis. Also available is linkage to social
service agencies or health care.
Primary Care family Planning
Mothers of WIC and family Case Management children are offered free yearly
women exams, STD screenings, contraceptive education and family planning services,
if they do not hold a current medical card for themselves.
