Does your child receive care from a hospital therapist? If so, please be aware of a change that takes place May 1, 2013. Starting then, therapists must be enrolled in a state program that offers care to children. It’s called the Children’s Intervention Services (CIS) program. This change applies to providers who treat children for long-term therapy in areas that include:
