Understanding Family Economic Impact of Chronic Child Health Conditions

This study will address an important knowledge gap by estimating financial and time costs for families of children with autism. We will recruit 1,500 families of children 3-17 years old from geographically and ethnically diverse integrated health systems: Kaiser Permanente Northwest, Kaiser Permanente Northern California, Kaiser Permanente Georgia, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii and the OCHIN network of federally qualified health plans. Using the Family Economic Impact Interview, we will follow participating families for one year to collect information on family costs and examine what factors contribute to these costs.
