    Abstract

    In this study we assessed the impact of administrative changes occurring in 1993 on the Indiana Children's Special Health Care Services program. Responses from a 1994-1995 survey were compared with a 1991 survey. Unmet needs declined in 6 categories: primary medical care, hospital services, home nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and special equipment. Unmet needs remained the same in 6 categories: specialty care, speech therapy, respite care, parent support, child support, and sibling support. Unmet needs increased in 5 categories: dental care, mental health, transportation, housing modifications, and child and day care. Although program changes improved the health care needs of clients in many areas, additional efforts are still needed.
