Who do Kids Miracle Steps serve?
“We don’t want to have limitations but insurance purposes and what PPEC has had limitations, so our main focus is the medically fragile child or the medically complex child,” Day Espinal, the Operations Director of Kids Miracle Steps, said.
As much as possible, our centers want to be of help to every struggling child. We want to see them thrive and reach their full potential. But we take full consideration of insurance requirements and the limitations of PPEC services, which are given to medically complex and diagnosed children.
Day discussed that she encountered situations wherein parents of autistic children want to enroll. Autism children are not typically qualified for PPEC services. Still, if a licensed physician has diagnosed them in situations like short bowel syndrome or seizures, Kids Miracle Steps can entertain these children.
Requirements to qualify for PPEC services
We have simplified our admission process to make it easier for the parents, children, and the administration. The method includes the following:
- Screening patients
- Requesting for medical records
- Evaluation of child’s conditions
- Filling out necessary forms
Day personally screen the children and their parents to get to know them better. The admission process can take between two to three weeks.
