Voyager Home Health Care is your best partner in maintaining your child’s health and well-being through the Children’s Home and Community Based Services (CHCBS) program. This vital program provides critical medical treatment to children who are hospitalized or require other institutional care due to chronic health conditions. Even if your family does not qualify for Medicaid due to income or resources, the CHCBS program, which is designed particularly for children aged 18 and under, is ready to help.
Why Should You Think About Voyager Home Health Care for CHCBS?
For parents and children who wish to receive expert care in the comfort of their own home or neighborhood, Voyager Home Health Care is the finest alternative. Although parents normally administer these services, Voyager Home Health Care is on hand to help, ensuring your child meets the program’s specific eligibility requirements.
Understanding Voyager’s Role in CHCBS
In compliance with the CHCBS program criteria, Voyager Home Health Care is committed to delivering long-term medical care at a level comparable to that commonly provided in hospitals or skilled nursing facilities. We’re also well-equipped to ensure your child meets the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) definition of disability, which will speed up the application process.
Support for CHCBS Eligibility from Voyager
At Voyager Home Health Care, we respect the CHCBS program’s age and fiscal constraints. If your child’s monthly income is less than three times the current Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) level (for the most up-to-date information, see the SSI website), we can help. If your child’s financial resources are less than $2,000, we can also help.
