WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, President Donald J. Trump signed the bipartisan Advancing Care for Exceptional Kids Act of 2019 (ACE Kids Act) into law.

The ACE Kids Act supports better coordination of care for children with complex medical conditions who rely on Medicaid. It supports care close to the child's home and community, reduces unnecessary hospitalizations, and provides for more seamless access to care across state lines when needed.

"Children's hospitals thank President Trump and Congress for getting the ACE Kids Act across the finish line," said Sandra Fenwick, president and CEO of Boston Children's Hospital and a member of the Children's Hospital Association's Board of Trustees. "This is an exceptional moment, when leaders from both parties have come together to establish a stronger foundation for the future of children's health."
