Once JRA, now RA?Once JRA, now RA?

I was diagnosed with JRA when I was a young kid.
Now that I'm an adult and I still see a rheumatologist for my active disease, does this mean I now have RA? What's the difference?

Rhuematologist Choice

As an adult with Juvenile onset RA is it still important to see a Rheumatologist that specializes in pediatric Rheumatology as well or is it now ok to see a Rheumatologist that specializes in adults only?

The reason I ask is because San Antonio (where I live) only has 1 Pediatric Rheumatologist, the Dr. who treated me for the past 17 years, but he does not accept my new insurance.
