Public Notice of Proposed Actions for Former Foster Care Youth—Coordinated Care

The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) gives notice of the following proposed actions regarding coverage of former Foster Care youth under the State Plan under Title XIX of the Social Security Act Medical Assistance Program (Medicaid).
