If you are pregnant, on WIC or receive LINK/SNAP, or have a high-risk infant under the age of one, and qualify under income-guidelines, you may be eligible.

Youth Care Program

Youth Care (formerly known as Healthworks HWIL) is a collaborative effort between the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS). Youth Care Health Choice Illinois ensures that children in the protective custody of DCFS receive quality healthcare services that meet their individual needs. Medical case management is provided for youth under the age of 6, who are in the care of DCFS. Medical care management ensures that children meet all health care requirements, like routine examines, immunizations, dental care, and hearing and vision screenings. This is accomplished by the medical case manager collecting and reviewing medical records, collaborating with foster parents, and providing these medical records and health summary to the assigned DCFS case worker biannually.
