Special Medical Services

Special Medical Services, the New Hampshire Title V Program for Children with Special Health Care Needs, administers health programs and services for children ages' birth to 21 years, who have, or are at risk for, a chronic medical condition, disability or special health care need. Special Medical Services (SMS) provides leadership in building and promoting a community-based system of services that is family centered, comprehensive, coordinated and culturally competent.

Special Medical Services provides medical and financial services to children with special health care needs (CSHCN). Children with special health care needs are those who have, or are at increased risk for, chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional conditions, which require health and related services of a type beyond that, required by children generally.

Special Medical Services (SMS) helps NH families with health information and support services, and helps them with specialty health care services for their eligible children. SMS provides care coordination services; support for child development and neuromotor clinics; nutritional and feeding/swallowing consultation; psychological and physical therapy services; and support for the NH Family Voices and Partners in Health programs.
