Transition to Adult Healthcare: Insurance

No one likes to think about health insurance. But if you are a teenager with a chronic condition, you must think about health insurance and make sure you don’t lose it.

Listen to young adults who have grown up with chronic conditions explain why insurance is so important and how to make sure you keep it.


Health insurance coverage

Your healthcare team at CHOP will help you and your family to understand why health insurance is incredibly important and will assist with finding the right health coverage for you.

Medications and hospitalization are very expensive, but more and more of the chronic illnesses are now being covered by Social Security, medical assistance or Medicaid. During the transition process, our team will give you all the information you need to help you advocate for yourself.
