Advocates, family leaders, policymakers, and other stakeholders joined us on a webinar April 13, 2016, for a first step in building a national movement to promote care coordination policies and payment options that better serve children with special health care needs, families, and care providers.
Proposed changes in health care payment, from fee-for-service to alternative, risk-sharing payment models, can have a substantial impact on health services for children, especially those with complex care needs. In addition, tying payment to value can increase use of ambulatory and preventive services and encourage creative outreach. However, abrupt changes can interrupt continuity and reduce access to care.
Injustice and discrimination are completely against our values and against our mission. We are committed to listening, learning, and doing all we can to make a difference for all children and families.
