The Family to Family Health Information an Education Center is here to answer your questions about health and health care! These are some of the questions that we answer every day: 1. How can I get health insurance for my child with special needs? 2. How can my child’s health needs be taken care of during the school day? 3. Who can help me find medical care for my child? 4. How can my family get help in paying medical bills? 5. How can I help my teenager with special needs get ready for the future? The Arc of Illinois Family to Family Health Information and Education Center is a free service for families of children and youth with special needs, funded by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and The Arc of Illinois.
