What is CMH?

CMH, Children with Medical Handicaps, (formerly known as BCMH) is a health care program through the Ohio Department of Health. CMH links families of children with special needs to a network of quality providers and helps families pay for services their child needs.

CMH supports the medical home for children with special health care needs. A medical home is a way to provide high quality health care that is:

  • Family-centered
  • Accessible
  • Continuous
  • Comprehensive
  • Coordinated
  • Compassionate
  • Culturally competent

Most importantly, a medical home is a partnership between the doctor and the child’s family. CMH works with doctors and other health care providers to ensure that every child with a special health care need will have a medical home.
