CYSHCN is a joint program of the New York State Department of Health and the Onondaga County Health Department to improve the system of health care for children with special needs.

Does your child need health and related services beyond those generally required by other children? If so, then Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) is a program you need to know more about.

The CYSHCN program can help with the delivery of quality care to your child. CYSHCN provides resources and referral services to families of children and youth ages birth to 21 with special health care needs. Your child may be eligible if he or she has, or may have, a serious or chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition.

Some program links available through CYSHCN:

  • Care at Home Medicaid Waiver for Developmentally Disabled Children (OPWDD)
  • Care at Home (CAH I/II) Program for Physically Disabled Children
  • Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs Support Services (CYSHCNSS)
  • Health Insurance and Child Health Plus
