Kaileigh Mulligan Program (Home Care for Disabled Children)

The Kaileigh Mulligan Program allows certain severely disabled children (under age 18) to live at home with their parents and have MassHealth eligibility determined without counting the income and assets of their parents. The child’s medical needs must be severe enough to require a level of care equal to that provided in a hospital or pediatric nursing facility.This program covers payments for a wide range of medical and nursing care, and certain medical equipment and supplies for the child. The cost to MassHealth cannot be greater than what it would cost for the child to live in a hospital setting or nursing facility.
