Back to CSHCN.

***CSHCN defined based on meeting at least one of the following TWO screening criteria because of ANY medical, behavioral, or other health condition that has lasted or is it expected to last 12 months or longer:
1. Currently uses or needs prescription medicine.
2. Currently uses or needs more medical care or mental health or educational services than is usual for most children of the same age.

CSHCN based on two screening criteria definition is used as CSHCN subgroup in CHAMP 2005-2007 & 2 010 webtables.

*9th-12th grade includes those in college or other post high school education.

**Health Insurance categories: PRIVATE = State Employee Health Plan, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC, or other private health insurance plan purchased from an employer or directly from insurance company.
PUBLIC = Medicaid, Carolina ACCESS, Health Check, or NC Health Choice. OTHER = the military, CHAMPUS, TRI CARE, Indian Health Servcies or other type not otherwise listed.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
