CMS OFFERS ROADMAP FOR STATES TO HELP CONNECT CHILDREN WITH COMPLEX MEDICAL CONDITIONS TO CRITICAL MEDICAID SERVICES

08/22/2022


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), recently unveiled guidance on a new Medicaid health home benefit for children with medically complex conditions. This new optional benefit helps state Medicaid programs provide Medicaid-eligible children who have medically complex conditions with person-centered care management, care coordination, and patient and family support. CMS anticipates that the new benefit will help these children receive the care they need, including across state lines.
