Free implementation toolkit available

A new publication to help with the implementation of Concurrent Care for Children Requirement (CCCR) is available at no cost on the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) web site.

The toolkit provides information on the options available to states that are implementing CCCR, which provides for children younger than age 21 who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and who are eligible for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program to receive hospice and palliative care services while receiving disease-modifying treatments.

To access a copy of Concurrent Care for Children: Implementation Toolkit, go to www.nhpco.org/pediatrics and select the publication under "Policy."
