Partners for Children (PFC) Pediatric Palliative Care Waiver Renewal 

 PPC Waiver Renewal

The Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) Waiver Renewal Application was submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for approval, on 9/29/17.  The PPC Waiver serves children who have a California Children’s Services (CCS) eligible medical condition with a complex set of needs.  The PPC Waiver is based on the principle that curative treatments, along with palliative care, can improve the quality of life for children and families, and reduce institutionalizations. 

The most recent version of the Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) Waiver Renewal Application was submitted to CMS on 9/29/17, and is available online.  

To request a hard copy of the Waiver Renewal Application, please email or call 916-322-5253.

Public Comment Period

The public comment period for stakeholder input on the draft waiver renewal is now closed.  All comments and input received during the public comment period were considered for incorporation into the PPC Waiver, and will be published to this webpage shortly.



DHCS is committed to engaging in a public process for the renewal of the PPC Waiver program. DHCS is convening two (2) technical advisory workshops for the purposes of reviewing proposed changes to the PPC Waiver program and hearing recommendations for necessary improvements or changes to the program.
