The Calhoun County Health Department wants to let local families know about a resource that can help children with certain chronic conditions.

The CCHD says that the Children’s Special Health Care Services is a program that helps cover co-pays and deductibles for those with private insurance or Medicaid, and also helps with transportation and finding resources in the community.


Those without insurance coverage can also get help.

The program within the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services helps children with over 2,700 diagnoses, including epilepsy, diabetes and cerebral palsy, and there are no income requirements. The CCSD says that over 600 children in Calhoun County get help through the CSHCS program.
