IS PPEC RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?

Our kids benefit greatly from the social and developmental aspects of our program, as well as the collaborative, multi-disciplinary, high quality health care they receive because their nurses, therapists and teachers all work together under the same roof to achieve the best results possible.  


Children are eligible from birth to age twenty while they require therapeutic or skilled nursing care.  Most of our patients attend Caring Hearts all day from Monday through Friday, but we also offer part-time enrollment tailored to your child and family's specific needs. Additionally, we have after-school, Saturday, holiday and summer break programs for children enrolled in school.

HOW MUCH WILL CARING HEARTS PPEC COST ME?

Nothing. Caring Hearts PPEC services are provided at zero out of pocket cost. 

PPEC services, including transportation to and from our centers, are fully covered by Florida Medicaid, MediKids and the Children's Medical Services Plan. MediKids is available to all Florida children ages 1 through 4 so long as the child does not have other health care coverage.
