Pregnancy Program — Bright Start

Bright Start logo

Bright Start is a special program for our pregnant members.

When you join Bright Start, a Care Manager will call you and work with you to help you receive and use program services. If your pregnancy is high-risk, a team of nurses and Care Connectors will check in with you often to help you stay connected to care during your pregnancy. 

Call 1-888-276-2020 (TTY 1-888-765-9586) or visit the member portal today to join.

What can the Bright Start program do for me?

Home-delivered meals for qualifying new moms

First Choice offers 14 home-delivered, ready-to-eat meals for qualifying new moms after they give birth to their child.*

To qualify:

  • New moms have had one call with the Bright Start team with a completed maternity survey and discussed the "Meals for Moms" benefit during their pregnancy.
  • After the child is born, the Bright Start team will work with the qualifying mom to confirm the delivery address and submit the request for the meals. All 14 meals arrive in one shipment.

If someone from Bright Start is unable to reach the member within four weeks after the birth of the child to confirm the delivery address, we will be unable to process the request.

*Applies to babies delivered on or after July 1, 2021.
