Rhode Island Medical Assistance Program for Children with Special Health Care Needs
Rhode Island Department of Human Services
The RI Medical Assistance Program pays for medical and health related services for Children with Special Health Care Needs who qualify. Children with a disability or chronic condition are automatically eligible for the Medical Assistance if they are determined eligible for: Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Katie Beckett or Adoption Subsidy through the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF). When eligible for Medical Assistance, parents or guardians are then given a choice of enrollment in one of two participating health plans. Children who live in a institutional facility are excluded from health plan enrollment. In those situations, children will be enrolled in traditional Medical Assistance Fee-For-Service.
