Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Title V / Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) programs are the locus of accountability for CYSHCN populations. The majority of MCH Title V / CYSHCN programs coordinate with Medicaid agencies, family organizations, pediatric clinicians, and other public health organizations across the United States to implement initiatives that support implementation and advancement of the pediatric medical home. This e-Newsletter provides tools, resources, and national initiatives to support MCH Title V / CYSHCN programs and other medical home stakeholders enhance collaboration, coordination, and partnerships that serve CYSHCN.
As you will note, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is mentioned throughout this e-Newsletter. At the time of publication, bipartisan Congressional action has extended CHIP funding for six years, continuing to provide coverage for nearly 9 million children.
