Children & Youth With Special Health Care Needs

The Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs Program provides assistance statewide for individuals from birth to age 21 who have, or are at increased risk for a disease, defect or medical condition that may hinder their normal physical growth and development and who require more medical services than children and youth generally.  The Program focuses on early identification and service coordination for individuals who meet medical eligibility guidelines.  As payer of last resort, the CYSHCN Program provides limited funding for medically necessary diagnostic and treatment services for individuals whose families also meet financial eligibility guidelines.

To Missouri residents who meet medical and financial eligibility guidelines.


To be eligible for the program an individual must:


The program provides two primary services:

  1. Service coordination for all participants, regardless of financial status.
  1. Limited funding for medically necessary diagnostic and treatment services for participants whose families meet financial eligibility guidelines

CYSHCN is the payor of last resort.  The Service Coordinator will assist the participant/family with resource identification and referral.  All third party liability must be exhausted prior to accessing CYSHCN funds.
