Significance: While national health transformation presents an opportunity for millions of currently- uninsured Americans to obtain health insurance coverage, it does not guarantee that all children and families will have access to care that is adequate, affordable, and continuous. Gaps in care may remain for women and children, particularly children and youth with special health care needs. Navigating through the turbulent currents of health care reform will be challenging, particularly where cultural and linguistic barriers, health disparities, immigration status will impact health outcomes. A trained MCH workforce can ensure that programs are built with this understanding in mind to better support health equity initiatives throughout the state.
