What is specialized care?
Specialized care provides a supplemental payment to the family home provider, in addition to the family home basic rate, for the cost of supervision to meet the additional daily care needs of an Aid to Families with Dependent Children-Foster Care (AFDC-FC) child who has a health and/or behavior problem. Placement of children who need specialized care in family homes complies with State and federal requirements that a child is entitled to placement in a family environment, in close proximity to the parent's home, and consistent with the best interest and special needs of the child. California's specialized care rate setting system promotes these concepts. The Specialized Care Increment (SCI) is the supplemental payment added to the foster care basic rate for children with health and/or behavioral problems.
