Your child may be eligible for state agency funding, called Flexible Family Support or Special Medical Funding, to pay for respite care and some other out-of-pocket expenses. Eligibility may vary from one agency to another.
Ask your child's primary care provider (PCP), care coordinator, or case manager for information on how to get respite care and flexible family support funding. Contact Family TIES at 800-905-8437 or see the State Agencies section of the Family TIES Resource Directory for more information.
