TELL YOUR LEGISLATORS: COSPONSOR THE ACCELERATING KIDS’ ACCESS TO CARE ACT
Children with complex medical needs such as leukemia and other pediatric cancers often must travel outside of their home state to receive necessary care. Yet, in order for an out-of-state provider or care team to be approved to treat the child, the provider must go through screening and enrollment processes in the child's home state Medicaid program. This causes burdensome, unnecessary delays for time-sensitive care that can lead to a child's condition worsening.
