Submitting Well Child Visit (“Bright Futures”) Forms to MaineCare

March 30, 2012

Maine’s Public Health Nurses continue to review the well-child visit forms to identify health concerns or missed well-child visits and provide education and support to the family. A new mechanism for Public Health Nurse follow-up is in development. In the meantime, providers may continue to submit the forms to facilitate follow-up, but it is not a requirement. Current policy does not tie provider incentives (or disincentives) to the submission of the forms.
