The mission of the Children’s Medical Services (CMS) Program is to ensure that there is a community-based, coordinated, family-focused, culturally appropriate, comprehensive system of quality specialty health care services available for Georgia’s children and youth with eligible chronic medical conditions from birth to age 21. CMS is intended to ensure the provision of specialty health care services to children and youth with special health care needs who are residents of the State of Georgia and live in low income households. CMS works to provide improved health outcomes for children with special health care needs by coordinating their access to affordable quality specialty health care in our communities and by using the resources in a responsible manner. CMS offers care coordination by nursing and professional staff for every child enrolled in the program. Every child enrolled in CMS receives periodic home visits from CMS staff. Medical and surgical treatment services may be available through private providers. These services may include hospitalization, doctors’ appointments, durable medical equipment, medicines, and supplies for the eligible medical condition(s).

In CMS, children from birth to age 21 with eligible chronic medical conditions receive comprehensive, coordinated specialty care.
