Children with Special Health Care Needs

Children's Health Plan (CHIP)

Children with Special Healthcare Needs (CSN) is Rhode Island's Medicaid managed care plan for Children with a disability or chronic condition and 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 Medicaid, parents or guardians are then given a choice of enrollment in a participating health plan. Children who live in an institutional facility are excluded from health plan enrollment. In those situations, children will be enrolled in traditional Medicaid Fee-For-Service.

Children with Special Healthcare Needs may qualify for RIte Care under UnitedHealthcare Community Plan. The Department of Human Services will enroll Children with Special Healthcare Needs who are eligible for Medicaid.

This plan is available in all counties.
