DC Prevention and Medicaid Financing Task Force Discusses Recommendations for CHW Credentialing and Sustainable Reimbursement Models

The DC Prevention and Medicaid Financing Taskforce held its third meeting on August 26th.  Discussions focused on the progress of the two workgroups that were formed at the second Taskforce meeting: the CHW Workforce Development and the Financing Workgroups. Workgroup members addressed topics including workgroup structure and technical needs. Participants discussed recommendations for a potential credentialing model and a sustainable reimbursement model that aligns with the Medicaid State Plan Amendment and planned their next meetings. The next meeting of the DC Taskforce is expected to be in mid-October and the schedule for upcoming workgroup meetings will be announced shortly.
