About Kent County Children’s Special Healthcare Services
Children’s Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) is a program within the Kent County Health Department and the Michigan Department of Community Health. It is for children and some adults with special health care needs and their families. The program offers medical care and treatment assistance for children with chronic, severe, disabling health problems; and provides service coordination to meet child and family needs. Eligibility is based on the child’s diagnosis, severity, and treatment plan—NOT income. Many families with CSHCS coverage have private insurance. CSHCS provides additional help to these families. There is a cost for the program determined by a sliding fee scale. (In other words, the fee is determined by your income and household size.) This fee is waived if the individual applying is enrolled in Medicaid or MI Child.
