Transition to Adult Living in Pennsylvania:
Transition Health Care Checklist
The Pennsylvania Department of Health, along with other commonwealth agencies and community partners, recognized the gaps in health and other services for transitioning youth and those with special health care needs.
When youth with special health care needs move towards adulthood, they face changes dealing wtih health care providers, insurance and other services. Working with the Pennsylvania Community on Transition State Leadership Team, agencies and families, the Transition to Adult Living in Pennsylvania: Transition Health Care Checklist was created to help guide youth, families and professionals in planning during this time of transition.
