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.
