Sufficient access to services for children with medical complexity varies considerably by state, geographic region, and payer. Families, advocates, and health care professionals need to understand children’s rights. Policymakers and payers must help support reliable and appropriate coverage and benefits. Learn how medical-legal partnerships and other forms of advocacy can protect the rights of children and support families in an era of cost containment.
Discussing the article, Protecting Rights of Children with Medical Complexity in an Era of Spending Reduction, the panel reviewed what government and private health plans are doing and could do to promote optimal health, development, and family functioning for children with medical complexity.
This was the sixth in a series of conversations that we will have throughout 2018, with authors of the PEDIATRICS Supplement: Building Systems that Work for Children with Complex Health Care Needs.
