The Department of Healthcare and Family Services and the Department of Children and Family Services are committed to ensuring that our state’s most vulnerable children and young adults have access to high quality healthcare. They and the families who care for them deserve coordinated, whole-person healthcare and wrap-around services to help them navigate a complex system and lead them to healthy adulthood.
The transition of DCFS youth in care will be taking place on April 1. Children and young adults eligible for YouthCare who are no long under the guardianship of DCFS (former youth in care), as well as special needs children, will be transitioned on February 1. Learn more about the February 1 transition, including who is included, helpful resources, and the benefits of Managed Care.
