Strengthening Health Care Delivery Systems for Children with Special Health Care Needs and the Role of Quality Measurement
Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018
2-3 p.m. (EST)
States are in the midst of rapid transformation of their health care delivery systems, including how they provide services to children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). As of June 2017, 47 states and Washington, DC, use some form of managed care to provide services to all or some children with special health care needs enrolled in Medicaid. Of the states with managed care delivery systems serving CYSHCN, 37 states rely exclusively on risk-based managed care organizations to deliver services.
As more states serve CYSHCN in Medicaid managed care, it is important to understand the unique needs of CYSHCN and how program and policy changes impact their access to high quality care. This webinar will feature presenters from Delaware, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, who recently participated in a NASHP learning collaborative focused on improving Medicaid managed care for CYSHCN. The webinar will also feature an overview of resources that NASHP has recently developed to help states implement quality measurement and improvement efforts for CYSHCN in Medicaid managed care.
