The Commissioner of Social Services must create “a child health quality improvement program” as a means of encouraging HUSKY Plan, Part A and Part B providers to use evidence-based strategies to improve the quality of and access to children’s health care. The strategies must include: (1) coordination and care planning; (2) identifying children with special health care needs; (3) standardized means of collecting data for performance measurement; (4) the use of “family-centered services….” The Commissioner must develop the plan with the assistance of public and private stakeholders that are interested in the improvement of health care delivery or have experience with health services research.

The Commissioner must submit annual reports to the General Assembly regarding the implementation and efficacy of developed strategies.

The Commissioner and Council on Medicaid Care Management Oversight must prepare an annual report regarding “health care choices under the HUSKY Plan, Part A” that includes items such as “a comparison of the performance of each managed care organization, the primary case care management program, and other member service delivery choices.” HUSKY Plan, Part A beneficiaries must receive a copy of this report.
