Children with Medical Handicaps (CMH)
CMH is a financial assistance program funded by a state and county partnership, for families with children with special health care needs. The Public Health Nurse facilitates the program assisting the family with an application; information on MCH approved providers and a case management for those approved for the program.
CMH provides financial services to rule out a handicapping condition, determine a diagnosis, or establish a plan of treatment for a child already diagnosed with a medical condition. There is no financial eligibility for the diagnostic program. For those diagnosed with an eligible condition, the program offers the potential for a treatment program.
Public Health Nurses work with families whose children have special health care needs. The PHN can be an important resource for families who may be working with many agencies and providers.
