DOH to Help Clinics Improve Well-Care Exam Rates for Children

The Washington State Department of Health is partnering with the Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) for a project to run from August through December which aims to boost children’s well-care exam rates.

Incentives are available upon completion of five tasks and vary based on the number of children attributed to the clinic and the number of partnering MCOs. To qualify, clinics must:

  • serve at least 250 Medicaid managed care patients from 0 to 21 years old with one Medicaid MCO;
  • have a child/adolescent well-care visit rate that is currently below the state average; and
  • be willing to dedicate time and resources between August and December 2021 and partner with 1-2 Medicaid MCOs to complete the five tasks to increase the rates of well-care exams for identified age groups.
