CMS Offers Roadmap for States to Help Connect Children with Complex Medical Conditions to Critical Medicaid Services

August 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.
