STAR Kids Benefits
Children who receive Medicare will keep using Medicare for basic health services and prescriptions ordered by their doctor. Families will receive help with coordinating care. Community First Health Plans will provide service coordination. This will help identify needs and connect members to services and providers. Community First’s service coordinators will review each member’s specific needs. They will help the family and health plan create a unique individual service plan. Service coordinators must do a standard screening and assessment called the STAR Kids Screening and Assessment (SK-SAI). This will help to see each child’s needs as they relate to health and independent living.
