Voluntary Foster Care Agency (VFCA) Services

Starting July 1, CDPHP will cover Voluntary Foster Care Agency (VFCA) Health Facility services for those under the age of 21 who are eligible. These facilities work with children, youth, and families to promote well-being and positive outcomes for children placed in their care. These services include:

  • Core Limited Health-Related Services, such as skill building, nursing supports and medication management, Medicaid treatment and discharge planning, clinical consultation and supervision, and managed care liaison/administration.

  • Other Limited Health-Related Services, such as screening, diagnosis, and treatment services related to physical, developmental, and behavioral health, Children and Family Treatment and Support Services (CFTSS), and Children’s Home and Community Based Services (HCBS).

Also starting July 1, children and youth placed in foster care and a VFCA health facility, or children and youth placed in foster care in New York city, must join a Medicaid managed care plan. Children who are not eligible will receive services through regular Medicaid.
