The Treatment Program is available for one year from a BCMH approved health care provider
to families meeting financial and medical eligibility requirements. BCMH does not count stepparent income. When a child’s doctor applies to BCMH for treatment services a child needs, the parent or legal guardian will receive a financial application packet unless the child is active on the Medicaid program. A Combined Program Application
must be completed. However, a child receiving benefits through Medicaid
, Medicaid Waiver
, Institutional Medicaid, SSI
or the Women, Infant, and Children Program (WIC) is automatically financially eligible for BCMH treatment services, regardless of the parent's income. Treatment services may include laboratory tests and x-rays, visits to BCMH approved doctors, prescriptions, therapies, medical equipment and supplies, surgeries and hospitalizations, service coordination, and public health nursing services.
