The InCK Model is designed to reduce expenditures and improve the quality of care for children under 21 years of age covered by Medicaid and CHIP through prevention, early identification, and treatment of behavioral and physical health needs. States and local organizations will work to conduct early identification and treatment of children with health-related needs across settings to:
- Increase behavioral health access;
- Respond to the opioid epidemic; and
- Improve child health outcomes.
