Welcome to the Southern Regional Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs!

What’s New

If your child is covered by Medicaid, you might want to know more about HealthCheck “Other Services” (HCOS). This is a benefit for children that covers items not typically covered by the ForwardHealth card. If you haven’t used it, you’re not alone! In Wisconsin, HCOS has been underused and often difficult to access. The Department of Health Services has recently undertaken new efforts to clarify and streamline HCOS so that providers and families can take advantage of this benefit.
