Welcome to the new DHSS site! This is a soft-launch, so please email any issues you find to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This program is operated by the Division of Social Services. It provides Medicaid coverage to severely disabled children who do not qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or other Medicaid qualifying programs because of their parents' income and/or resources. Parents wishing to apply for this program for their child should contact the appropriate DSS Long Term Care Service Delivery unit.
The financial criteria for this program are the same as that of the DSS Medicaid Nursing Facility program. The child's gross monthly income cannot exceed 250% of the SSI standard. The child's countable assets cannot exceed $2,000. The parent's income and assets are not considered.
