ChildrenFirst PPEC is here for you every step of the way. Our exceptional nursing, therapy and education programs are unique to ChildrenFirst. Along with nursing and PT, OT and ST, we provide a daily experience in early childhood education, centered around the developmental needs of your child. ChildrenFirst is the only PPEC in the U.S. to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Let us help your child achieve their fullest potential!
The open concept design of our centers inspires a nurturing, interactive and collaborative, health care environment in which our children thrive! Your child is never segregated into closed rooms. Our nurses, therapists, aides and certified teachers are assigned throughout the center to assist your child with every need!
Who Attends ChildrenFirst PPEC?
Infants, children and teens up to 21 years old. We never turn down or discharge children based on age. We provide a wide range of clinical services, up to 12 hours daily, including oxygen management, trach care, tube feedings, apnea monitoring, and vent management. We also give medications, including IVs, and monitor for seizures, cardiac, respiratory and GI conditions. Ask us about our before and after school and school breaks care.
Who Pays For PPEC?
Straight Medicaid pays for the nursing care received at PPEC. If your child is in a Medicaid MMA plan such as WellCare, Sunshine or Amerigroup, or others—those plans pay for therapy and transportation provided at PPEC. That’s why other PPECs require your child to switch to straight Medicaid or Children’s Medical Services to attend their PPEC, because they don’t have contracts with the MMA plans for therapy and transportation! ChildrenFirst accepts Medicaid, CMS and EVERY Medicaid MMA plan, so our parents NEVER have to change to straight Medicaid or CMS in order to get all PPEC services with us! Why do we care if parents are told to change plans to get PPEC services? Because more and more families benefit greatly from the their MMA plan. Some of the area’s leading specialist physicians only accept MMA plans. Almost 90% of all Medicaid families are in a MMA plan, NOT straight Medicaid. Don’t be mislead into changing your insurance plan in order to attend any PPEC. Keep your MMA plan, keep your specialists, keep all of your providers and still get nursing, therapy and transportation when you choose ChildrenFirst!
How Do I Enroll My Child?
We obtain orders from your child’s physician, create a detailed plan of care, and get the insurance authorization. In most instances, children eligible for PPEC can get started with us in just a day or two!
Does ChildrenFirst Have Transportation?
All ChildrenFirst centers have reliable, comfortable buses and can transport your child from home to the center and home again. RNs, LPNs, or EMTs accompany every bus trip. No long bus trips needed when your child attends ChildrenFirst. We have 6 convenient locations to serve you and 2 more coming soon!
