Medicaid Managed Care COVID-19 Advocacy Guide

For Pediatricians, Other Primary Care Practitioners, and Child Health Advocates

The December webinar on managed care can be found here, including the recording and presentation slides. Additionally, in partnership with Georgetown CCF, we produced a Medicaid Managed Care COVID-19 Advocacy Action Guide to supplement the webinar.

This guide is jointly produced by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families (CCF) as part of “Keeping Kids Connected to Care During COVID-19 and Beyond,” a project supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The goal of the project is to protect and improve children’s access to comprehensive care through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) during and after the COVID-19 pandemic by strengthening the capacity for collaborative initiatives between AAP chapters, state child advocates, and health policy experts. This guide supplements “Medicaid Managed Care Payment Policies to Support Pediatric Providers,” a webinar presented on December 7, 2020 by Manatt Health, CCF, Family Voices, and AAP.
