How States Use the National Standards for CYSHCN in their Health Care Systems
The map below showcases the many ways states are using the National Standards for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) to improve systems of care and, ultimately, health outcomes for CYSHCN. It illustrates how states are integrating the National Standards into their Medicaid and state Title V Maternal and Child Health Services (MCH) Block Grant programs. This information is also captured in individual charts that highlight how the National Standards are applied to state Medicaid programs and to state Title V (MCH) Block Grant programs. This work is supported by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health.
