Health care systems are increasingly using a process known as "risk tiering" to group patients with similar degrees of need for health care and care coordination services. Families and care providers of children with chronic and complex conditions should understand the risk tiering process, as it may affect access to services these children need. This report outlines how tiering currently is being used, and makes recommendations for policy and research.
