NHVRC State Profiles present data provided by evidence-based models, which include both MIECHV and non-MIECHV data. • Percentages may not add up to 100 due to rounding. • Public insurance includes Medicaid, CHIP, and TRICARE. • EHS programs in PR offer a combination of service options. EHS data are not included because home-based service data cannot be isolated from statewide data. • HFA reports primary language of caregivers.
