Children who are currently receiving Orthodontic care under the PHCP will continue to be covered for PHCP Orthodontia Services through their retention year of treatment as long as they continue to meet the financial and medical eligibility guidelines for the program.
Children who are currently receiving coverage for Medical Conditions under the PHCP will continue to receive coverage through the end of their existing authorization period or any authorizations in the process as long as it is determined that they meet the financial and medical eligibility guidelines.
