Currently, these intra-agency policies do exist, but they do not have any practical relevance because the CDJFS has little direct responsibility in assuring comprehensive health care. As mentioned above, the Medicaid program and its MCPs have statutory responsibility to assure access to health care services for all children, including those in the custody of PCSAs. PCSA and providers must work with the Medicaid program and the MCPs to assure access to services for children in custody. Instead of focusing on interagency policies, this section should instead discuss the shared and overlapping responsibilities and duties for these parties related to assuring comprehensive health care needs are met for children in placement.
