The PA DOH Transition Health Care Checklist has been updated!

May 28th 2013

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 toward adulthood, they face changes dealing with health care providers, insurance and other services. Working with the Pennsylvania Community on Transition State Leadership Team, agencies and families, the PA Department of Health created the Transition to Adult Living in Pennsylvania: Transition Health Care Checklist to help guide youth, families and professionals in planning during this time of transition.
