Teen Pregnancy Targeted Case

Management (TPTCM)


Program Purpose:
To provide comprehensive case management services to KanCare eligible pregnant and/or parenting adolescents in Kansas communities.

The program goals are to:

  • Reduce negative consequences of teenage pregnancy for KanCare-enrolled teens and their children
  • Increase levels of self-sufficiency and goal-directedness relating to their own futures and that of their children
  • Delay subsequent childbearing until completion of goals related to basic education/training or they reach 21 years of age

For more information on program goals, guidance, reporting requirements, refer to the Teen Pregnancy Targeted Case Management Manual.

Specific Program Information:

  • The KDHE TPTCM Manual must be used in the development of the TPTCM grantee’s policy manual.
  • The local grantee must use evidence-based practices in their work with pregnant and parenting teens.
  • All required client and visit data must be collected and entered into the web-based shared measurement system, DAISEY by the 10th of each month. Access to necessary equipment and secure internet service is required.
  • The local grantee must develop and implement a program evaluation process that utilizes client satisfaction responses and community needs assessment information to assess the program and results in improvements or changes to services based on feedback.
  • The local grantee must engage in public awareness activities and develop a referral network.
  • The local grantee will create and maintain a functioning advisory group which includes a teen representative.
  • At least one person from your agency is required to attend annual meeting and/or technical assistance sessions provided by KDHE staff.
