Children who have special health care needs often require extensive health care services. Getting the necessary services to maintain your child's health may involve working with different health care providers, state agencies and local community resources. You will have the help you need so that your child's complex medical issues will be appropriately managed by the health care system.
Children's Medical Services offers care coordination services to help guide families through the health care system. CMS care coordinators are nurses and social workers who work with the child's family and doctors to identify needs and the resources available to meet these health care needs. Care coordinators help your family schedule doctor visits, medical tests, or procedures and may also assist in getting behavioral, developmental, and social services.
The Office of the Children's Medical Services Managed Care Plan (CMS Plan) is a proud partner of FloridaHATS, which works collaboratively with CMS Plan and other partners statewide to make the transition from pediatric to adult health care for young Floridians with or without disabilities or special health care needs as seamless as possible. On the FloridaHATS website (http://www.floridahats.org), you will find information for families and youth, including an interactive Transition Toolkit that supports the transition process.
