The Referral and Eligibility Process
To refer a child or youth to a CIIS program use the referral forms below. There is a form for each program. Email the completed form to CIIS. The CIIS eligibility team will assess whether the child's support needs qualify them for CIIS services.
- Children and youth referred to the Intensive Behavior Program must first be eligible for their county’s developmental disability (DD) program. CIIS' medical programs do not have this requirements.
- Family income is not an eligibility factor. However, a child’s financial resources are considered
- Children and youth must be eligible for Oregon Medicaid benefits to receive services through CIIS. Some may qualify based on household income. Others may qualify based on their disability status.
- Apply for Medicaid through the ONE system. Your local county DD program can assist with this process during the CIIS intake process. This guide explains the Medicaid application process and includes tips for parents. Please contact us if you have questions.

Medically Fragile Program (MFCU)
Children in the Medically Fragile Program have very intense medical and nursing needs and depend on specialized medical technology for their health. Providers for medically fragile children are often nurses or overseen by RNs to ensure that supports are properly performed. A clinical criterion is conducted by MFCU nursing staff with input from the families and medical community.
Medically Involved Program (MICP)
Children in the Medically Involved program generally require moderate to full support with all routine, daily activities, including mobility supports (use of a walker, wheelchair, or carried), and help with grooming, bathing, dressing, and elimination. The child may also require specialized medical interventions such as daily respiratory treatments, seizure protocols or G-tube
Intensive Behavior Program (BEH)
Children in the Intensive Behavior Program frequently demonstrate challenging behaviors, such as aggression, self-injury, elopement, and sleep disturbances, which require their family members to constantly adapt their environment and routines to maintain safety in the home. A child must have a primary diagnosis of a developmental disability and be enrolled in their county’s Developmental Disability program before being referred to the Intensive Behavior Program.
