Children With Special Healthcare Needs in Medicaid Managed Care

Join us for a new Manatt webinar, the second in our Medicaid managed care series.

States are increasingly enrolling children with complex physical and behavioral healthcare needs, including children in foster care and those receiving waiver services, in Medicaid managed care. Many of these states are expecting more of their contracted managed care plans to ensure vulnerable children’s needs are addressed through the managed care delivery system. Which states have robust requirements in place—and what themes are emerging? Find out in a new Manatt webinar, “Supporting Children With Special Healthcare Needs in Medicaid Managed Care”—the second in our Medicaid managed care series.

The webinar will review the evolving managed care standards for children with special healthcare needs across states, including:

  • Requirements for enhanced, coordinated and person-centered care management for children with special healthcare needs who have acute and chronic physical and/or behavioral health needs;
  • Staffing requirements to ensure plans have specialized experts on hand and are equipped to address emergent and urgent needs, including service utilization approvals;
  • Transition protocols to support children moving from one plan or care setting to another without gaps in care; and
  • Specialized network adequacy requirements with an emphasis on pediatric specialists and subspecialists. Even if you can’t make our live program on June 20, please click here to register free now, and we will send you a link to view the webinar on demand.

P.S. Our Medicaid managed care webinar series kicked off on May 24 with “Redefining Care Management in Medicaid Managed Care.”
