Office for Children with Special Health Care Needs

Office for Children with Special Health Care Needs (OCSHCN) formerly the Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs


OCSHCN provides comprehensive care to children and youth with special health care needs who: are KY residents, are younger than 21, and meet medical eligibility. For a third year in a row, OCSHCN has awarded Marty’s Orchid House with $15,000 for a Registered Nurse’s (RN) salary, totaling $45,000 since 2018! What an enormous impact this makes to our growing organization. We employ and staff 1 RN for every 6 children daily to provide skilled pediatric nursing care and coordination of services for complex needs. These are our highest-paid professional staff who make up the bulk of our annual budget. OCSHCN supports innovative healthcare solutions for vulnerable populations and we are proud to be considered as such!

Thank you OCSHCN!
