Child With Special Health Care Needs

The Child with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Pool of Funds financially assists those who are uninsured, under insured or whose families have gross family income at or below 300 percent of the federal poverty level. The funds assist with payment of certain services such as:

  • Medications
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Physician-specialty office visits

Some expenses can't be paid for by these funds, such as copays and deductibles.

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