Johnston County North Carolina

Care Coordination for Children Program (CC4C)

The Care Coordination for Children (CC4C) Program is a care management program provided by the NC Division of Public Health in conjunction with the NC Division of Medical Assistance and Community Care of North Carolina. It is a voluntary program, provided at no cost to families, that strives to maximize health outcomes for eligible children. Services are provided by care managers who are qualified and experienced in working with families and children.

Who is Eligible

Care management services are provided to children birth to five years of age who meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • A child who has special health care needs or is at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition that has lasted or is expected to last at least 12 months and who requires health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children in general.
  • A child who is in foster care and has no medical home.
  • A child who is currently exposed to some sort of toxic stress, including but not limited to: domestic/family violence, caregiver unable to meet child's health and safety needs/neglect, active alcohol and/or drug abuse by caregiver, parental/guardian mental illness and/or depression, homeless, living in a shelter or having an unstable home, parental rights were terminated in the past.
  • A child whose primary medical doctor has requested CC4C care management services for that child.

Services Provided

A Care Manager contacts the family to schedule a home visit. The Care Manager completes a comprehensive health assessment and a family Life Skills Assessment during the visit. If the child is eligible and family is interested, the child is enrolled in the program. The Care Manager develops a plan of care based on the child and family's identified needs. Intervention and follow up with the family are provided through home visits, phone calls, visits at the doctor's office, and letters. The intensity and frequency of contacts varies for each family based on the number and types of needs being addressed. The Care Manager also works closely with the child's Medical Home to assure that needs are being met. The child will be discharged from the program once all needs are met, no further progress is made, or the child becomes five years old.

How to Make a Referral

To make a referral, please call the Johnston County Health Department at 989-5200 and ask to speak to a CC4C Care Manager.
