The public health emergency resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has real implications for state Title V programs as well as families raising children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN).
State programs like Medicaid/CHIP and Title V, which are integral to the system of services and supports for children and youth with special health care needs, must be ready to adapt and respond to the current challenges faced by children, families, providers, and other stakeholders.
These fact sheets help explain health coverage provisions for CYSHCN and families in the CARES Act. Understanding these policy changes can support activities related to care coordination, benefits and coverage counseling, and aid in reducing the risk of family financial hardship. This information can also inform the changing landscape of health coverage for CYSHCN.
