Every pediatrician seeing children in foster care should know their local county DHS Health Liaison Officer’s (HLO) contact information because these professionals are the key to important patient health information. Please locate your local HLO here. HLOs function as the liaison between foster care staff and Medicaid Health Plans to ensure appropriate medical coverage, and that physical, developmental, and mental health services for foster children is obtained.
