Financial Help

Medical expenses for a child with special health care needs can be significant.

Our case managers can help you make the best use of your health insurance, apply for public assistance, find grants,  and use other programs to help pay or reduce the costs of your child’s medical needs.

The Child with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Pool of Funds provides a limited amount of money to assist CSHCN who are uninsured or under insured whose families have gross family income at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level. 

The funds assist with payment of certain services such as medications, diagnostic testing, therapies, durable medical equipment, physician-specialty office visits and hospitalizations. Some expenses can not be paid for by these funds; items such as co-pays and deductibles.  

Financial eligibility is required for those asking for help from the Child with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Pool of Funds and preauthorization is required.
