Medicaid Handbook Notice

 

Below is new information that we will add to our Medicaid Member Handbook when we print them again. This insert is for STAR Members who are in the Adoption Assistance/Permanency Care Assistance (AA/PCA) program.

What is the AA/PCA?

  • The Adoption Assistance program provides help for certain children who are adopted from foster care.
  • The Permanency Care Assistance program gives financial support to family members who provide a permanent home to children who were in foster care but could not be reunited with their parents.

What if I need to update my address or phone number? - The adoptive parent or permanency care assistance caregiver should contact the DFPS regional adoption assistance eligibility specialist assigned to his or her case. - If the parent or caregiver doesn’t know who the assigned eligibility specialist is, they can contact the DFPS hotline, 1.800.233.3405, to find out. - The parent or caregiver should contact the adoption assistance eligibility specialist to assist with the address change. If you have any questions, please call Member Services toll-free at 1.888.760.2600. Thank you for choosing Community Health Choice.
