Where can I find my Health Liaison Officer (HLO)?

Health Liaison Officers (HLO) provide guidance to child welfare staff to meet the health needs of children in foster care.  They troubleshoot Medicaid coverage issues, health plan coverage and issues with access to community health providers.  They track compliance with timeliness of medical and dental exams.  HLOs are a good resource for any health-related questions.

HLO’s are assigned to a county, or number of counties depending on the local/regional population of children in foster care. The Health Liaison Officer working with your county may have their base in a county nearby.
