The goals of the InCK model are:

  1. Ensure that all children receive expanded EPSDT care at least annually;
  2. Identify children and adolescents who have more complex health, behavioral or social needs; and
  3. Provide community based care management that integrates with the pediatric health system.

About The Program:

The New Jersey Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (NJAAP) is partnering with HMH on the CMS InCK model to provide education and support in the early identification and treatment of children with health-related needs and to integrate existing services within the health delivery system to make resources more accessible for children and families.
