Member Meet-up: Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (GIPPCC)
August 25 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm ( ET )
C-TAC is excited to host its 2nd member meet-up, featuring the leaders behind the introduction of Illinois’ Pediatric Palliative Care Benefit. The Pediatric Palliative Care Bill (SB.2384) aims to make community-based, interdisciplinary palliative care services more accessible to patients and reimbursable for providers. Patients would be able to receive curative treatments in tandem with these services. Illinois is also one of the first states to approve a pediatric palliative care benefit.
