Request for Information (RFI) announced seeking input on improving pediatric care
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input on approaches to improve pediatric care. Through the RFI, CMS is specifically seeking input on approaches to improve the quality and reduce the cost of care for children and youth enrolled in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CMS is exploring concepts that encourage pediatric providers to collaborate with health-related social service providers at the state, tribal, and local levels and share accountability for health outcomes for children and youth enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP.
CMS understands that investing in child health can provide lifelong benefits and improve the nation's health.
Please submit comments and questions via email to HealthyChildrenandYouth@cms.hhs.gov by 11:59 PM on March 28th, 2017.
