  • Coverage and Referral for specialty services, based on your child's health problems.

  • Family-Centered Services to support you in your role as the primary caretaker of your child.

  • Community-Based Services to help you care for your child at home and maintain normal routines.

  • Culturally Competent Services that demonstrate an awareness of cultural differences.

  • Coordinated Services to pull together the services of many providers who work within different agencies.
