Child Health Newsletter

A big "thanks" to those who joined the WV Kids' Health Partnership meeting last week! We appreciate and value your input. If you were not able to make it, we would still like to hear from you. Our org is meeting this week to plan for the rest of the year and for the next legislative session. We would like to know what your organization's priorities are and how we can help you as we move forward. This will help us focus our work and show us how we can work together, but not duplicate work. Please take this short survey and let us know how you feel! You will see that the option "other" is listed on several questions, let us know what we may have forgotten to add. If there is extra info you want to share, please do! If you have questions, don't hesitate to reach out. This survey is completely anonymous and will be open until Wednesday at 12pm. Take the Survey

Our Story Collection Coordinator, Mariah Plante, has partnered with the WVCBP and they need to hear from you! If you or a family member are a person of color and enrolled in the Medicaid program in WV, please take the consumer survey. There is a separate survey for health care providers. If you have questions about this survey, would like to hear more about the "Elevating the Medicaid Enrollment Experience" project or would like to share your health care story, contact [email protected].

Provider Survey: Seeking input from health care providers, enrollment specialists, and others who serve low income communities in West Virginia regarding what barriers to Medicaid enrollment they most often observe.

Consumer Survey: Provide feedback on your Medicaid enrollment experience. Your response is confidential. Selected responses will be contacted for a paid interview opportunity by a member of our team.
