The 1989 edition of this annual memorandum describes the provisions in the 1989 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA-89) which affect federal and state programs of services for pregnant women, infants, children, and children with special health needs. OBRA-89 made a number of important changes to the MCH Block Grant, Medicaid and EPSDT, the Education of the Handicapped Act, and the Pediatric AIDS Health Care Demonstration programs, as well as directing the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to undertake some new efforts aimed at improving the access of children and pregnant women to health insurance and other benefits. The memorandum, which has been distributed to state Title V agencies, highlights the potential impact of many of these changes upon state programs. Later editions describe authorizing legislation and appropriations of interest to the maternal and child health community.
