In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, states are rapidly establishing new funding mechanisms and implementing emergency regulations, while providers are deploying innovative technologies to connect with their patients. It is unclear how these changes will affect children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and their families. The goal of this project is to examine how COVID-19 and the responses by federal and state governments, health systems, and providers affect health care for CYSHCN in both the short and long term.
