Child Health Supervision: Analytical Studies in the Financing, Delivery, and Cost-Effectiveness of Preventive and Health Promotion Services for Infants, Children, and Adolescents.
Solloway, Michele R., Ed.; Budetti, Peter P., Ed.
This report presents findings of a George Washington University Center for Health Policy Research (CHPR) multi-year project to conduct analytical studies on the financing, delivery, and cost effectiveness of child health supervision services. Against a backdrop of decline in private sector coverage for children, a growing number of children living in poverty, and major health care reform efforts, the goal of the CHPR project was to identify and examine health systems problems in three major areas: access and financing, organization and delivery, and cost and effectiveness. The resulting studies are presented as follows: (1) "An Overview of Health Insurance Coverage and Access to Child Health Supervision Services" (Michele R. Solloway); (2) "Private Health Insurance Coverage of Preventive Benefits for Children" (Margaret A. McManus and Karen Hertz); (3) "A 20-Year Retrospective of Child Health Supervision" (Jerome A. Paulson and Michelle R. Solloway); (4) "Ensuring Adequate Health Care Benefits for Children and Adolescents" (Peter P. Budetti and Claire Feinson); (5) "Informing State Medicaid Providers about EPSDT [Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment Program] (Michele R. Solloway and Others); (6) "Barriers to Full Participation in EPSDT and Possible Strategies for the Maternal and Child Health Bureau" (Michele R. Solloway); (7) "Medical Managed Care: A Briefing Book on Issues for Children and Adolescents) Harriette B. Fox and Margaret A. McManus); (8) "State Implementation of OBRA '89 EPSDT Amendments within Medicaid Managed Care Arrangements" (Hariette B. Fox and Lori Wicks); (9) "Population and Selective (High Risk) Approaches to Prevention in Well-Child Care" (Barbara Starfield and Patrick Vivier); (10) "Estimating Costs and Savings from Preventive Child Health Proposals" (Donald N. Muse); (11) "The Role of Outcomes, Effectiveness, and Cost-Effectiveness Research in Child Health Supervision" (Peter P. Budetti and others); (12) "Cross-National Comparisons of Well-Child Supervision" (Barbara Starfield and Jennifer Harlow); (13) "Environmental Health and Child Health Supervision: A Case Study of Childhood Lead Poisoning" (Bradley R. Pine and others); (14) "Pediatric Oral Health" (Arthur Nowak and others); (15) "Adolescent Preventive Mental Health Services" (Anne L. Ducey and Michelle R. Solloway); and (16) "Health Supervision and School Health Services for Children" (Michelle R. Solloway and others). Many of the studies include tables and appendices. (HTH)
