Childrenäó»s Mental Health: Concerns Remain about Appropriate Services for Children in Medicaid and Foster Care
Katherine Iritani (au)
Experts have concerns that children with mental health conditions do not always receive appropriate treatment, including concerns about appropriate use of psychotropic medications (which affect mood, thought, or behavior) and about access to psychosocial therapies (sessions with a mental health provider). These concerns may be compounded for low-income children in Medicaid and children in foster care (most of whom are covered by Medicaid) äóî populations who may be at higher risk of mental health conditions. Within the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) oversees Medicaid, and the Admin. for Children and Families (ACF) supports state child welfare agencies that coordinate health care for foster children. This report examines (1) the use of psychotropic medications and other mental health services for children in Medicaid nationwide, and related CMS initiatives; (2) HHS information on the use of psychotropic medications and other mental health services for children in foster care nationwide, and related HHS initiatives; and (3) the amount HHS has invested in research on childrenäó»s mental health. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
