State Strategies for Using Shared Plans of Care to Improve Care Coordination for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

The current opioid epidemic is driving a heightened focus on substance use disorder (SUD) prevention and treatment for pregnant and parenting women, who have unique needs and face unique challenges. However, gaps in care often remain, particularly during the postpartum period. This NASHP webinar, supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration, will highlight a state that is coordinating across agencies and systems to meet the needs of pregnant and parenting women affected by SUD. Speakers from Colorado will describe the coverage, financing, and care delivery strategies that their state agencies and safety net providers leverage to facilitate recovery among pregnant and parenting women with SUD, including opportunities for cross-system collaboration.
