This online Pediatric Palliative Care Waiver Transition Resource Guide was developed by the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC) in response to California’s January 1, 2019, transition for the provision of pediatric palliative care services from a waiver program to a pediatric palliative care Medi-Cal state benefit. The guide is intended to support managed care plans and providers as they navigate this change and to ensure a smooth transition for the pediatric members being served under the waiver. We want to acknowledge the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), Medi-Cal managed care plans, pediatric palliative care providers, and numerous clinicians and other stakeholders throughout the state for their valuable input.
