How We Help /

How To Apply

Filling out an application is easy, but we’re always happy to answer questions along the way.

Staff can assist by phone or in person at our office. We can even arrange to meet you at your home or another convenient location, if that helps.

Applying to Specialized Care for Children

To apply, you can print out forms to fill in by hand, fill in the forms electronically then print them, or contact a Specialized Care for Children Regional Office to request that the forms be mailed to you.

After you print and complete the application, it should be mailed to your regional Specialized Care for Children office. If you need help determining which region you’re in, use our Find an Office page.

How long does it take?

A Care Coordination team at your regional office will review your application then send you an Authorization to Release Health Information. Medical records are necessary to confirm whether your child has an eligible condition.

We work as quickly as we can to determine if and how we can help your child—our goal is to begin making a difference in the life of your family as soon as possible!
