The Catalyst Center created two interactive worksheets for Title V program staff, family leaders, and other stakeholders. These worksheets provide an overview of Title V, and Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Each worksheet includes resources you can use to find and insert state-specific information to help demonstrate the importance of Title V, Medicaid and CHIP for children with special health care needs (CSHCN). The worksheets were created as companion materials to the Catalyst Center’s Public Insurance Programs and Children with Special Health Care Needs: A Tutorial on the Basics of Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
With support from the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, the Catalyst Center created a State Statutes and Regulations on Dietary Treatment of Disorders Identified through Newborn Screening chart that provides information about state-specific legislation that mandates the coverage of medically necessary foods by employer-sponsored health insurance.
Coverage of medically necessary foods and related services by Medicaid, CHIP and other publicly-funded programs such as WIC, Title V, or relief funds are also described.
An hour-long webinar held on June 20, 2016 to “get acquainted” with the tutorial, Health Care Coverage and Financing for Children with Special Health Care Needs: A Tutorial to Address Inequities. MCH staff from Alaska and Michigan share strategies they use to work towards health equity for CSHCN in their states.
