CMS Title V Program

Contact: Florida Health

Welcome to Children’s Medical Service (CMS) Title V Program,

Florida State’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) and Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) program.

 

Our Title V Program supports statewide public health efforts to protect, promote and improve the health of children and young adults with chronic and seriousphysical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional conditions through a comprehensive system of care. Of the total population of U.S. children, ages birth to 17 years, children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) represent approximately 19.4%, or nearly 14.2 million children*.

 

Authorized by Title V of the Social Security Act, the MCH Services Block Grant supports the infrastructure for our Title V Program; while, the National Systems Standards for CYSHCN, a critically important framework that highlights specific system requirements for health providers and plans serving CYSHCN**, provides direction in action planning. Aligning our Title V Program initiatives with those of national importance further drives development of statewide programs that include supportive policies for all children. Additionally, Florida’s Title V Program workforce utilizes Public Health Detailing to establish and maintain strong service networks through state, regional, and community relationships.
