Coding and Reimbursement Tip Sheet for Transition from Pediatric to Adult Health Care

Improving transition from pediatric to adult health care is a national priority, a medical home certification standard, and a meaningful use requirement for electronic health records. Health care transition encompasses increasing youth’s ability to manage their own health and effectively use health services. It also involves ensuring an organized clinical process to prepare youth and families for adult-centered care, transferring youth to a new adult provider, and orienting and engaging young adults in their own care.
