The good news is, Sunshine Kids Pediatric Care is here to help. Originally operating in Florida, their flagship facility had such incredible success with children and parents alike that they brought their unique services to Texas.

You may be asking yourself about education, and if they work to ensure your child is not just being cared for, but is aided in achieving as much function and independence as possible. Here’s the good news, at each step, they believe that education is an integral part of the formula for success to ensure a child’s cognitive growth. Their goal is to help your child achieve as much function and independence as possible while blending nursing, therapy, and education in one place.
As far as cost goes, the cost of the program is covered by Medicaid, Medicaid Manage Care Plans, Children’s Medical Service Network (CMS), and some commercial insurance plans for qualifying families.
