Regional Centers for CYSHCN
Physicians may refer a child with special health care needs to one of the five Regional Centers using this referral form.
The Consent to Release Medical Information Referral to a Regional Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs form is approved by Wisconsin Department of Health Services and posted on their website for use. The two-page voluntary release is HIPAA compliant. Parent signature on this form allows medical providers and Regional Center professionals to communicate directly with one another and expedites care for families in need of information and referral services. Providers may choose to indicate the reason for referral, including respite care, special foods or formula, and health benefits counseling. Page 2 of the form provides the information on how to determine the appropriate Regional Center to provide assistance to the family, as well as that center’s contact information.
