Apply for Medical Care for Children Partnership (MCCP)

Medical Care for Children Partnership (MCCP) graphic logoThe Medical Care for Children Partnership (MCCP) offers families with low income (under 250% of FPL) a reduced-cost healthcare program for children under age 18. MCCP children are enrolled in a medical home with access to regular check-ups, physicals, sick child visits, pharmacy, x-rays and lab work. Enrolled children also receive limited services for specialty care and dental care. Hospitalization and emergency room visits are not covered by the program. MCCP is not health insurance.

The Medical Care for Children Partnership (MCCP) offers low-income families a reduced-cost health care program for children up to age 18.
