As part of three presentations, Holly Grason outlines several national Maternal and Child Health (MCH) programs. For each program, Ms. Grason explains the program goal, the timeframe and intent of its creation, program structure, program services, and populations served. This learning opportunity, the third presentation of the series, covers health security programs that do not provide services directly, but rather pay for the services provided by other federal programs: Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program). The Early Periodic Screening Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) Program is also explained in this presentation. A PDF of the presentation slides is available at
