About CHIPRA

A newly developed video series by the CHIPRA team addresses issues faced by providers and adolescent patients and offers suggestions on how to deal with specific situations. Watch the rest of the series on the video page.

The State of North Carolina, Department of Health and Human Services, was awarded a five-year quality demonstration grant for the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) by the US DHHS Health Resources and Service Administration. The grant contains three parts which includes the following:

  • Category A, which experiments with and evaluates the use of new measures for quality of Medicaid/CHIP children’s health care.
  • Category C, which evaluates new provider-based models to improve the delivery of care to Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN.)
  • Category D, which demonstrates the impact of the model Electronic Health Record (EHR) format for children.

CHIPRA Connect, also known as Category C, was launched in March 2011 to assist participating practices within Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) networks to implement a medical home for Children & Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) with a focus on social-emotional, developmental, and behavioral health.

The NC Center of Excellence for Integrated Care and NC Community Care Networks provide support and integrated care technical assistance to the participating networks and practices to implement and test these provider-base models to establish a comprehensive medical home for children and youth with special health care needs.
