Health Care Advocacy
It can be really challenging when you’re in foster care, because there are laws and regulations that apply specifically to you. They affect who can give permission for your health care, the services and treatments you receive, and who pays for them.
Parent to Parent of New York State builds a supportive network of families to reduce isolation and empower those who care for people with developmental disabilities or special healthcare needs to navigate and influence service systems and make informed decisions.
This manual is designed to support foster care and health services staff in focusing attention on the critical issue of adequate, timely health services for children in foster care.
