Care4Kids Health Screen Assessment

The Care4Kids benefit recognizes that children in out-of-home care deserve healthcare that reflects their unique needs, and therefore emphasizes the importance of using providers trained in these needs. Children will be provided with an out-of-home health screen within two business days of entering care, preferably at a child advocacy center or child protection center.

A Comprehensive Initial Health Assessment will be provided within 30 days of entering care, preferably at an identified center of excellence. A center of excellence is a medical provider who is trained in the specific health needs of children in out-of-home care, and is considered a "champion" in the health care field. Providers in the centers of excellence understand the enhanced health care needs of the population and have been trained in trauma-informed care. The partnership between the health care coordination team and the centers of excellence ensures that information is shared in a timely, collaborative manner that will improve outcomes for children in out-of-home care.

To schedule your child's out-of-home care health screen, please call toll free 855-371-8104.
