Pennsylvania Department of Health

Transition Health Care Checklist

A resource to help Youth with special health care needs make a successful transition to adult living that includes their health and health care.

REVISED: JUNE 2008 Pennsylvania Department of Health

Transition Health Care Checklist

The Pennsylvania Department of Health southwest regional staff and their community partners recognized a gap in health services for youth with special health care needs. When these youth leave school, they transition from having different or no insurance coverage, from seeing pediatric specialists to searching for adult medical specialists, and from good coverage for medications to having to understand new systems for obtaining medicines. Working with the State Transition Team, agencies, and families, the Transition Health Care Checklist was created to guide youth, families, and professionals during this time of change.
