Katie Beckett Program
How to Apply

To apply, contact the Katie Beckett Consultant located in the region where the child lives. The Katie Beckett Consultant will explain the program and assist the family in deciding whether or not the Katie Beckett Program is the best Medicaid option for their child. If a parent decides to apply, the Consultant will send an application packet. The application is also available online as a Word fillable document. This document can be saved to a personal computer and printed it out. Once the application and the forms from the application packet are complete, the parent should call the consultant to schedule a home visit to meet the child, go over the application packet and answer questions.

The application cannot be electronically submitted for multiple reasons. The most important reason is that the application contains very personal and sensitive information about your child. The Department does not have the ability to encrypt incoming e-mails. In addition, a home visit is required with new applications. The consultant will submit the completed application packet to the Department after meeting with your child in your home.

Eligibility determinations for the Katie Beckett Program are made by nurses employed by the Division of Long Term Care, Bureau of Long Term Support. A required recertification is done annually or whenever significant changes occur.

Members should notify the program of address changes, changes which may affect eligibility or any problems in getting the Medicaid card by calling (608) 266-3236.
