Massachusetts Generally Complied With State Requirements To Ensure Children Who Were Title IV-E Eligible and Residing in Foster Care Congregate Care Group Homes Received Required Medical Services

The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (State agency) generally complied with applicable Federal and State regulations for ensuring that children who were Title IV-E eligible and residing in foster care congregate care group homes received medical services during calendar year 2015 as required pursuant to Title IV-E of the Act.

Of the 75 case files we reviewed, 74 case files contained documentation to support that required services were received by the children in foster care. One case file did not contain documentation to support that the child in foster care received a 30-day comprehensive medical exam.

Accordingly, this briefing report contains no recommendations.
