• March 2019: Resources to Help States Improve Integrated Care for Children

    This month, NASHP features its Resources to Help States Improve Integrated Care for Children issue hub. Integrating children’s care improves early identification and treatment of health issues that can improve children’s well-being and avoid costly medical, special education, foster care, and criminal justice expenses. The issue hub provides valuable resources for states interested in the Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model and others working to implement payment, coverage, and cross-agency strategies to improve for integrated care coordination of behavioral, physical and health-related social needs for children eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
