Pathways to Success is a program for Medicaid enrolled children under the age of 21 in Illinois who have complex behavioral health needs and require intensive home and community based services. The program provides access to two tiers of care coordination including:
- Tier 1 – High Fidelity Wraparound for children and youth with the most complex behavioral health needs.
- Tier 2 – Intensive Care Coordination for children and youth with complex behavioral health needs.
The Pathways to Success program also covers additional services that can be provided in the youth's home and community including: Intensive Home-Based Services, Family Peer Support, Therapeutic Mentoring and Respite. Additional detailed information about the care coordination and other services can be found here: Pathways to Success Program Overview and Family Experience webinar .
To determine which youth are eligible for the Pathways to Success program and to ensure that they are receiving the most appropriate tier of care coordination, a Behavioral Health Decision Support Model is utilized. A description of the Behavioral Health Decision Support Model can be reviewed here.
