The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) and CMS are hosting a webinar titled “Improving Care Delivery for Children: Leveraging the Medicaid Benefit for Children and Adolescents” on February 5, from 3:00-4:30 pm EST.
The webinar will focus on improvement of service delivery under the Medicaid benefit for children and adolescents (also known as the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment benefit or EPSDT), Medicaid’s comprehensive and preventive child health program for individuals under the age of 21. It will consist of Medicaid officials from three states for a conversation about how they have worked to improve the Medicaid benefit for children in their states. The conversation will have a particular emphasis on efforts in these states to better coordinate care, use public health resources to deliver benefits, collect data on and improve quality, and enhance access and delivery of behavioral health services for children.
This webinar is the first in a series on the Medicaid benefit for children and adolescents. Future webinars will focus on oral health, adolescent health, and care coordination.
