Home Visiting Program

HPP encourages in-network providers to refer pregnant members and new parents to an evidence-based home visiting program.

All pregnant HPP members, and parents/guardians of children younger than 18 months, are encouraged to participate in one of these programs. There is no cost to the member.

These programs begin during the pregnancy, or just after the birth, and continue for at least 18 months of the infant’s life. Agency staff visit the family and provide educational resources, resource referrals and ongoing support; visit frequency is dependent on the family’s preference. Here are some of the nationally recognized home visiting programs that are available throughout Pennsylvania:

  • Parents as Teachers (, 717-763-1661)
  • Nurse-Family Partnership (, 844-637-6667)
  • Early Head Start (
  • Healthy Families America (

These programs all are proven to improve outcomes for new families by educating parents about child development and improving their parenting skills.

How to Make a Referral to These Programs
All these programs accept referrals through their websites and by phone. Providers can make the referral on the member’s behalf; members may self-refer, as well. You can make the referral by sending an email with the member’s information and your contact information to; HPP’s care coordinator will assist in connecting the family with a program.

HPP’s Baby Partners coordinators educate their members about these programs and help members enroll. HPP also outreaches to members and encourages them to sign up for a home visit program. For more information, contact the Baby Partners team at 1-866-500-4571.
