Foster Care Center of Excellence

As a center of excellence, Family Care Spokane will be an entry point for healthcare, providing:

  • Early and periodic screening, diagnosis and treatment within 30 days of entering care
  • Behavioral health services
  • Referrals to specialists
  • Assistance with securing medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Lab tests and x-rays

Centers of excellence also can refer youth to Coordinated Care for additional support, as needed.

In 2016, the Washington State Health Care Authority named Coordinated Care as the sole health plan responsible for managing the healthcare of the state’s approximately 24,000 youth involved in the child welfare system including foster care, adoption support and alumni of foster care.
