Children with medical handicaps program

Many of our families receive benefits from the Children with Medical Handicaps Program (CMH), a health care program sponsored by the Ohio Department of Health. CMH links families of children with special health care needs to a network of quality providers, and provides financial assistance for qualified families.


Guardianship is an important consideration for parents of children who have special needs. Guardianship allows you to make decisions on your child’s behalf once they turn 18. To learn more, visit the publications page of the Ohio Attorney General’s website. Click on “Guardianship Guide” for a free download.
