New York Medicaid Program Outlines a Vision for Enhanced Pediatric Care Model

The New York State Medicaid program has released a report that puts forth a bold vision for strengthening children’s primary care across the state. Authored by the state’s Preventive Pediatric Care Clinical Advisory Group (PPCCAG), the report builds upon recent New York Medicaid efforts to ensure the future health, educational achievement, and economic stability of its beneficiaries by focusing on child development. 

United Hospital Fund (UHF) staff have partnered closely with the New York State Department of Health in leading both the advisory group and First 1,000 Days on Medicaid initiative, which seeks to improve health and developmental outcomes for the state’s children under age 3. UHF's Suzanne C. Brundage and Lee Partridge authored a commentary on the new report.
