Medically Handicapped Children's Program-Eligibility
This information can be found at the MHCP Program regulation site.
There are no financial eligibility requirements to have the Program provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Families are eligible for the Program if a child has a medical disability or special health care need that is congenital or chronic. A listing of some of these conditions are listed under the heading of Medical Conditions.
A financial application is not required until a diagnosis and treatment plan has been determined. The cost of care is factored into the financial application formula and a family may be eligible with the Program and the family sharing the cost. The Program can also assume medical insurance co-pays and deductibles.
Families with children eligible for Medicaid and/or Kids Connection are automatically eligible for attendance at the specialty clinics for children and youth, for services coordination, and for support services through the Supplemental Security Income-Disabled Children's Program.
