Babies Can’t WaitThis program serves Georgia families of children from birth to three years of age who have disabilities or significant developmental delays. This program was first implemented in 1987 and is administered by the Georgia Department of Health.
This program is the “point of entry” for all the Children with Special Needs programs. Children 1st was established to ensure early identification of children considered to be at high risk for poor health and/or development and to connect them with a primary care provider.
This program provides medical care to children from birth to 21 years of age who have disabling conditions or chronic diseases. The goal of CMS is to help each child reach his or her maximum potential.
