Improving Chronic Care for Children in California: Learning from Medicare

By: Edward L. Schor, MD

His new issue brief suggests that state officials should consider implementing proposals in S.870, the CHRONIC Act of 2017, related to home health care, tailored benefits, telehealth, and financial incentives for providers.
