IHOC’s goal is to improve the health of children. For example, many children in Maine do not get their vaccines on time. So IHOC will work with doctor’s offices to help more children get their vaccines on time. This will help protect all children in the state, by reducing certain contagious illnesses.
Funding Organization or Grant
The IHOC project is paid for by a grant from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) through Section 401(d) of the Child Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA).
