The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services yesterday issued guidance to help state Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs use existing authorities and flexibilities to design programs, benefits and services to address social determinants of health.

“Many Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries may face challenges related to SDOH, including but not limited to access to nutritious food, affordable and accessible housing, convenient and efficient transportation, safe neighborhoods, strong social connections, quality education, and opportunities for meaningful employment,” the guidance notes.
