About the Coordinated System of Care (CSoC)


The Coordinated System of Care (CSoC) brings together the Department of Health (Office of Behavioral Health and Medicaid), the Department of Children & Family Services, the Department of Education, the Office of Juvenile Justice, the Governor's Office, family, youth and advocate representatives to establish a service delivery system that is better integrated, has enhanced service offerings and achieves improved outcomes. Specific goals for the CSoC include:

  • Improving the overall outcomes for enrolled children/youth and their caregivers
  • Decreasing the number of youth in residential/detention settings
  • Reducing the state's cost of providing services by leveraging Medicaid and other funding sources
