Partners in Contraceptive Choice and Knowledge (PICCK) is an innovative clinical and public health program designed to promote contraceptive choice and effective contraceptive counseling based in Massachusetts. PICCK seeks to help achieve equity in contraception access and promotes shared decision-making approaches to contraceptive counseling.

Contraceptive method information sheets are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Vietnamese, and Arabic. The method information sheets in multiple languages as well as other useful job aids for providers can be found here: The Contraceptive Information Sheets and job aids for Providers .

Please note bullets and counseling sheets below.*

  • The method counseling sheets for the Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARC) may indicate they are effective beyond the current FDA approved length of use.
  • It is up to each agency to determine if agency policy will permit providers and clients to use data from emerging trials of extended use that suggest Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARCs) remain effective past the expiration date recommended by the FDA.
  • The provider/patient would need to discuss before a decision is made, and that discussion would need to be documented in the patient record.

Each set of method counseling sheets in multiple languages includes the following.

Care Management for High-Risk Pregnancies (CMHRP)

What is Care Management for High Risk Pregnancies?

Care Management for High Risk Pregnancies (CMHRP) is outcome-focused, with an emphasis on improving birth outcomes through reducing the rate of preterm and low birthweight births and monitors the pregnant Medicaid population and prenatal service delivery system using data.  CMHRP applies systems and information to improve care and assist members in becoming engaged in a collaborative process designed to manage medical, social and behavioral health conditions more effectively.

Meeting the diverse and complex needs of members requires a holistic, person-centered approach that addresses both physical and behavioral health. A holistic approach must consider the social determinants of health - "conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks" (Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2016). The more complex the needs, the more comprehensive the approach should be for assisting the member with a care plan that addresses the whole person and collaborates with other systems that impact the member’s well-being.
