16 Insurance Status by Level of Complexity

17 Unmet Needs / Health Care Access Problems or Barriers

18 CSHCN Experience a Higher % of Unmet Needs / Health Care Access Problems or Barriers

19 Families of CSHCN who incur major medical costs are: Twice as likely to be covered by private than public insurance Almost 3 times as likely to have poor, fair, or good than very good or excellent health status

20 CSHCN who delay or avoid getting needed health care are: 10 times more likely to be uninsured than privately insured Twice as likely to be older (ages 13-17) than younger Twice as likely to have poor, fair, or good than very good or excellent health status 4 times as likely to live in a rural (non-Appalachian) region compared to Hamilton county

21 CSHCN who do not get needed prescription medications due to cost are: Greater than 10 times more likely to be uninsured than privately insured Twice as likely to be under 6 than between years of age Twice as likely to have poor, fair, or good than very good or excellent health status 4 times as likely to live in a rural (non-Appalachian) region compared to Hamilton county

22 Families of CSHCN who have an unmet need for health care of any kind are: Greater than 6 times as likely to be uninsured than covered by private insurance Almost twice as likely to have poor, fair, or good than very good or excellent health status

23 CSHCN Transitioning to Young Adults Have More Unmet Needs 28.1 % of young adults with SHCN are uninsured

24 Policy Implications

25 Stable and adequate health care insurance is vital for this vulnerable pediatric population Early screening for diagnoses of chronic conditions if they manifest at an early age Focus on CSHCN transitioning to adulthood to avoid high levels of unmet needs Policy Implications

26 Entire families are impacted by caring for a child with SHCN The health care system is but one of many that CSHCN interact with, and coordination between all is important for quality of life and well-being (e.g. behavior in school may be due to poor adherence taking medications) Policy Implications
