This NASHP webinar offers a federal perspective from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on opportunities and promising strategies for states to leverage the Medicaid benefit for children and adolescents to better engage and meet the needs of adolescents. This is followed by a conversation with presenters from two states about initiatives they have launched to better serve adolescents using the Medicaid benefit for children. Participants learn about these states’ strategies for getting Medicaid-enrolled adolescents the services they need, and key lessons learned in implementing them.
