Concurrent Care for Children

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) into law enacting a new provision, Section 2302, termed the “Concurrent Care for Children” Requirement (CCCR). 

The District of Columbia Pediatric Palliative Care Collaborative (DCPPCC) and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) are pleased to provide the Concurrent Care for Children Implementation Toolkit, which details information on the options available to states implementing Section 2302 or are considering expansion of pediatric palliative care services to children living with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
