Children's Special Health Care Services - For Children with Chronic Health Conditions

CSHCS will pay the medical bills for qualified persons to see specialty providers and pay for care related to their condition. This care may include surgery, medications, equipment and hospitalizations. CSHCS can also help provide or cover transportation costs to these appointments. There are more than 2,700 medical conditions that may qualify children for coverage including diabetes, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, hearing loss, cystic fibrosis and blood disorders. Any condition where a child needs to see a specialist for care (like a doctor at the University of Michigan or Toledo Hospital) may qualify. Eligibility does not depend on income. Families of all incomes can join as well as those with private health insurance. Some families pay a fee to join that is based on a sliding scale. Children with an approved diagnosis who have Medicaid or MI Child may also qualify for CSHCS at no cost. For more information and a complete list of qualifying medical conditions, visit www.michigan.gov/cshcs or call the Lenawee County Health Department at 517.264.5228.
