Developed by the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home in partnership with the National Academy for State Health Policy, this fact sheet highlights how state Medicaid agencies are working to incorporate social determinants of health (SDoH) screenings into their programs to improve health outcomes for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). Opportunities for collaboration and partnership between Medicaid, Title V Maternal and Child Health / CYSHCN programs, and pediatricians are discussed. State-level case studies provide innovative, replicable strategies for implementing SDoH screening. ​
