Managed care means that you will pick a health plan that will provide the health services you need through a network of doctors, specialists, and other providers. Those enrolling in the STAR Kids program will choose a health plan, as well as a primary care physician or clinic who will provide basic medical services, like check-ups, and provide referrals to a specialist when needed.
The services we offer children help them with everyday tasks. These tasks are called activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs)
