Specialty Care Program: Diagnostic Services

Special Health Services pays for health care visits and tests needed to diagnose many chronic health conditions seen in children. This service helps identify children with chronic illnesses or disabilities as early as possible so they can get the help they need.

To qualify, children must be suspected of having a Special Health Services-eligible condition.

There is no financial eligibility requirement for diagnostic services; however, insurance or other sources of health care coverage are used when available.

Health care visits must be made with a North Dakota Specialist (176kb pdf).

A two-page fact sheet on diagnostic and treatment services is available for more information.
