|Webinar To Discuss Model To Improve Youth Health
February 1, 2019
On February 21, 2019, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. ET, OJJDP will host a webinar to discuss the new "Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model" from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center. The InCK model is designed to reduce costs and improve quality of health care for children and youth from birth to 21 years of age, who are covered by Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program. The model will offer prevention, early identification, and treatment of behavioral and physical health needs for youth, including opioid addiction. CMS anticipates releasing a Notice of Funding Opportunity in early 2019 with information on how to apply and participate in the model. Register for this webinar.
