Children's Special Health Care Services(CSHCS)



2017 Summer Camp Scholarships



Children's Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) is a program within the Michigan Department of Community Health. It is for children and some adults with special health care needs and their families.

CSHCS helps persons with chronic health problems by providing:

  • Coverage and referral for specialty services based on the person's health problems.
  • Family centered services to support you in your role as primary caretaker of your child.
  • Community based services to help you care for your child at home and maintain normal routines.
  • Culturally competent services which demonstrate awareness of cultural differences.
  • Coordinated services to pull together the services of many different providers who work within different agencies.

Eligibility Requirements:

Several factors decide whether a person is eligible for CSHCS:

  • Residency: Must be a Michigan resident
  • Citizenship: Must be a US citizen or documented non-citizen admitted for permanent residence or a non-citizen legally admitted migrant farm worker (i.e., seasonal agricultural worker).
  • Age: Children must have a qualifying medical condition and be 20 years old or under. Persons 21 and older with cystic fibrosis or certain hereditary blood coagulation disorders commonly known as hemophilia may also qualify.
  • Qualifying Medical condition: A MDCH medical consultant reviews each case to determine eligibility. Severity and chronicity of the person's condition as well as the need for treatment by a specialist are factors considered. More than 2,500 diagnoses are potentially eligible.
