Insurance and Other Special Health Needs Essentials
Parents tell us...
"I had no idea what I was getting into when my son was born." "At first we struggled to get anyone to listen to us. Then we had to get the school to talk to her doctor, which was really hard." "I had to learn how to talk to my insurance company, spending hours on the phone. Now I have a care coordinator, which helps so much!"
Health care providers and specialists
There are a variety of services for children and adults with developmental disabilities. In Oregon, most services come through your county developmental disability services office, but there are federal, state, county, local and organizational supports and services for those with disabilities.
