These one-pagers are a visually appealing and easy way to share information about the system of care for CYSHCN with stakeholders. Resources for further topic exploration are listed at the bottom of the infographic. Infographic topics include: Medicaid, pathways to Medicaid coverage, EPSDT, inequities in coverage and financing, family financial hardship, the importance of partnerships, family engagement, value-based purchasing, and care coordination.
