Child Welfare Administrators Pitch Privatization To Investors, But Not Medicaid Fraud Or Human Trafficking

It breaks my heart how absolutely clueless our leadership is at the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services in child welfare, but hey, gotta fund those political campaigns through those NGOs!
Taken from the HHS lecture, she could not figure out
Medicaid fraud in child welfare increased costs

The U.S. Department of Human Services just made history busting human trafficking in foster care, but this video, even though it is from 2016, focuses on maximizing revenue from Medicaid, and makes no mention of Medicaid fraud in child welfare.

God forbid there is any mention of civil rights, human trafficking, rape, torture, drugging, etc.

Lawsuits against the States child welfare systems, specifically Children's Rights, was glossed over by stating that they could all work together as a "blended funding", or rather privatization.

There was no mention of the horrors these children and their parents endure.

This is nothing but a pitch for social impact bonds.


Why are foster kids depressed?

Because they want to go home.

Why do foster kids have an average of 13 months in care?

Because they run away to have a better chance on the streets.

Upon age out of foster care, there is no more revenue maximization through Medicaid.

For a quick synopsis of the above HHS presentation video, enjoy.


The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Administration for Children & Families, Office of Planning, Research & Evaluation is having a Research and Evaluation conference on Self-Sufficiency and even gave it a code (RECS).

How quaint.

The RECS provides a valuable opportunity to gather in Washington, D.C. and hear the latest findings from evaluations of social welfare programs and policies, discuss ways to incorporate findings into the design and implementation of programs, and develop strategies for future evaluations.

The conference focuses on programs, policies and services that support low-income and vulnerable families on the path to economic self-sufficiency and well-being. Past conferences have featured presentations on topics including:
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Education, Training, and Success in the Labor Market
  • Child and Youth Well-Being
  • Fatherhood, Relationships, and Strengthening Families
  • Evaluating Social Programs: Building and Using Evidence
  • Approaches to Alleviate Poverty and Strengthen the Safety Net
The conference will definitely not focus on programs, policies and services that support low-income and vulnerable families to report:
  • Fraud, waste and abuse in its child welfare programs;
  • Human trafficking;
  • Generation of fraudulent documentation used to file cost-reimbursed Medicaid billing;
  • Rape, torture and drugging of children who are wards of the courts and the States.
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Administration for Children & Families, Children's Bureau, Child Welfare Information Gateway held a conference.

Guess what the focus is on?

Human trafficking!  

Yes, It seems U.S. DHHS is slowly, very slowly, coming to understand, with bouts of denial, of course, that what they do is human trafficking when you take a tiny human, without permission of the parent, and physically move the tiny human to another location in exchange for money, then pay someone else to watch over the booty of your human pilfering for maximizing revenues.

Child Welfare Virtual Expo 2017
Strengthening Assessment and Decision-Making for Improved Outcomes

Thursday, July 13, 2017, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. EDT

The Capacity Building Center for States, a service of the Children’s Bureau, hosted the Child Welfare Virtual Expo 2017 on July 13. All sessions have been recorded and will be posted along with related resources in CapLEARN, the Collaborative’s Learning Center. Registration is free.

2017 Theme: Strengthening Assessment and Decision-Making for Improved Outcomes

This year’s Virtual Expo highlights the critical importance of assessment and decision-making to enhancing outcomes for children and families. Sessions cover strategies for assessing safety, conducting comprehensive assessment of parents, collaborating across systems for families with co-occurring issues, and using data effectively.

Engaging presentations will feature insights from national subject matter experts, child welfare professionals and partners, parents, and youth.

Two sessions are tailored for managers and administrators, and two are designed for frontline workers. Each session includes presentations and a virtual reflection activity to help you apply presentation concepts to your daily work. To promote group learning and interaction, you are encouraged to gather with colleagues to watch, discuss, and begin planning for implementation of new ideas.

Want to access sessions from last year's Virtual Expo? Archived sessions from the Child Welfare Virtual Expo 2016 are available on CapLEARN.

I am downloading and analyzing the training material from CapLearn and will provide an overview of how there are developments to maximize revenues in social impact bonds.
