Most services must be pre-approved by DHS. Rates are subject to DHS fee screens. This
program only reimburses parent(s) for their out of pocket expenses for the treatment
of physical, mental, or emotional conditions that MDHS has certified as pre-existing
Other available public money (e.g., Medicaid, Children's Special Health Care Services,
etc.) must be used first, when available. Families will be asked to use private health
insurance before medical subsidy reimbursement is authorized.
Reimbursement can be made directly to vendors (a vendor can be a licensed and/or trained
professional person or a licensed facility providing medical and/or related services)
or to the adoptive parent(s).
