BCMH Helps Children with Disabilities

The Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (BCMH) is a program developed by the Ohio Department of Health. It links those who have children with disabilities to a network of health care providers. BCMH also helps families pay for the services their children need. A child (21 years old or younger) can be enrolled in the program by their BCMH-approved doctor. The doctor will send a medical application form to the organization for approval. Families can find BCMH providers on the Ohio Department of Health website. A child may be eligible for this program if he or she has the following ailments. Other disabilities not listed may be eligible are as well.

  • AIDS
  • Cancer
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Chronic lung disease
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Diabetes
  • Hearing loss
  • Juvenile arthritis
  • Scoliosis
  • Severe vision problems

Those who need financial assistance for their child's health care are eligible on a case-by-case basis. Families must be evaluated on the medical care the child needs, the maximum ability to pay for health care, amount spent on private insurance and the amount spend on weekly child care. They also must meet a certain percentage of federal poverty guidelines. BCMH counts neither personal assets when determining financial eligibility, income from child support, nor social security income. A child receiving benefits through Medicaid, SSI or WIC is automatically financially eligible for BCMH treatment services, regardless of the parent's income. Find the closest BCMH to you today!
