CMS Provider Information

Nurse and GirlAt Children's Medical Services, we recognize that our providers are the foundation of the health care services we deliver; that's why we recruit only the most talented physicians and other health care practitioners to meet the needs of the special children we serve. Find a list of our approved providers and facilities at www.cmskidsproviders.com.

CMS provides a comprehensive system of care for eligible children with special health care needs. We believe in providing accessible, comprehensive, and family-centered care in a medical home setting. In addition, we have intervention, prevention, and other specialty programs that provide community based services in the natural environment and other appropriate settings.

CMS providers are an integral part of a network of local community practitioners, hospitals, and university medical centers around the state that provide quality care to children who need it most.
