State MCH-Medicaid Coordination

Title V and Title XIX Interagency Agreements

Title V and Title XIX logo

Purpose. This toolkit supplements an environmental scan of State Interagency Agreements (IAAs) of Title V and Medicaid programs and supports the report: State MCH-Medicaid Coordination: A Review of Title V and Title XIX Interagency Agreements, 2nd edition. It includes access to the final report, full-text, current IAAs (collected from the MCH Title V Block Grant FY 2016 Application/FY 2014 Annual Reports) and the 36 IAAs used in the scan, a searchable database, recommendations, and additional resources

Background. Title V programs complement Medicaid in many ways, including (1) providing gap-filling services to enrollees, (2) assisting in the identification of potentially eligible beneficiaries, and (3) creating an infrastructure in communities to ensure that the capacity exists to support the delivery of quality health care services for women and children.

A key factor in assuring coordination and mutual support can be the Interagency Agreement (IAA), required in both Title V and Title XIX legislation, between the State agencies (or divisions within a State agency) that administer the two programs.
