Report Finds Fault With U.S. Health Services for Teens
Date:12/9/2008

The report also said fragmentation in services and providers needed by teens results in care gaps. For example, most adolescents can't access specialty services in mental health, sexual health, oral health and substance abuse treatment, the report said.

The report authors said federal and state agencies, insurers and private foundations need to develop a coordinated health care system that improves services for all teens. Also, more must be done to meet the needs of adolescents who may be especially vulnerable to risky behavior or poor health, such as those who are poor, recent immigrants or in foster care.

Comprehensive, continuous health insurance is another requirement. The more than five million Americans ages 10 to 18 who are uninsured use health care services less often and are less likely to have a regular source of primary care than insured adolescents, the report noted.
