Information/Services

Children who are eligible for CAP/C include children with ventilators, tracheostomies, feeding tubes, severe seizures, and those children who need help with activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting when the child, for medical reasons, is not able to do or learn to do those tasks independently and because of these needs, in addition to case management and in-home nursing or aide care, families may also receive some additional services and supplies that Medicaid would not ordinarily pay for. Some examples are listed below:

  • respite care (in-home or institutional nursing care provided in order to give the child’s caregiver time)
  • home modifications (limited to stationary wheelchair ramps, widening of doorways for wheelchair access, and grab bars/safety rails mounted to the wall), and
  • waiver supplies ( reusable diapers and the disposable liners for them). 

 

 

 

Children on CAP/C also have access to regular Medicaid services, for example;

  • physical therapy,
  • occupational therapy,
  • speech therapy, and
  • medical equipment.
