A new report released by First Focus indicates that the Administration’s new rules for Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, if imposed, will have a disproportionate impact on children with special health care needs.

Commissioned by First Focus and authored by Sara Rosenbaum, JD, of The George Washington University Medical Center’s School of Public Health and Health Services, the report has analyzed each of the regulations proposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and determined that vulnerable children with special health care needs will be most severely impacted by these actions.
