Types of Insurance
Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP) is a Medicaid program for medically fragile children under the age of 21. GAPP covers in-home skilled nursing care and personal care support services for our medically complex children. Services are approved based on the child’s medical needs.
We work with you and your child’s doctor to apply for GAPP. Our intake team has the right expertise to help you to get approved for the care you need.
2. Katie Beckett Waiver
The Katie Beckett Waiver, or Deeming Waiver, is a Medicaid eligibility category for children under the age of 18. When a family has a higher income than the Medicaid level, the Katie Beckett Waiver is used to “waive” the family’s income and bases the approval decision on the child’s needs.
If the child qualifies for the Katie Beckett Waiver, they become eligible for services available under the Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP) Medicaid plan.
