Initiatives will ensure children in Oregon have continuous Medicaid coverage until the age of 6, and expand access to coverage and address nutrition and housing needs in the 2 states. The initiatives also take steps to address unmet health-related social needs (e.g., evidenced-based nutritional assistance and medically tailored meals, clinically-tailored housing supports)
