Transition Health Care Checklist (Pennsylvania Department of Health) (Revised 2012)

Description:

The Pennsylvania Department of Health southwest regional staff and their community partners recognized a gap in health services for youth with special health care needs. When these youth leave school, they transition from having different or no insurance coverage, from seeing pediatric specialists to searching for adult medical specialists, and from good coverage for medications to having to understand new systems for obtaining medicines.
