The WCAAP health care transformation committee was created to ensure the voices of pediatricians inform health system transformation efforts underway and that children’s health improves under health care transformation. We work with pediatric practices, hospitals, the Health Care Authority, Department of Health, managed care plans, and other child health stakeholders to help shape health care transformation in Washington State.
- Recruit pediatric providers in transforming care to further improve child health, including improved access to primary care and improved immunizations rates.
- Partner with pediatric providers and Medicaid contracted managed care organizations to prepare for value based payment.
- Ensure care coordination for children on Medicaid with complex social and medical needs is reimbursed in Washington pediatric practices.
- Ensure increased access to behavioral health care services for Washington children.
