Care coordination almost always tops the list of services desired by families of children with special health care needs. Yet agreement is lacking not only on the definition of care coordination but also on the best methods of financing this much-needed benefit. A new report from the Catalyst Center, with support from the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health, tackles the thorny questions of what care coordination is, who should receive it, who should provide it, and how it should be financed.
