What is the Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP)



Georgia Pediatric Program also known as GAPP is a Medicaid program that provides services to medically fragile children under the age of 21 in need of skilled nursing care and personal care support, in the safety of their own home. These services come at NO COST to the family. Services are approved based on the child's medical needs, and families who are eligible for Medicaid can apply for GAPP at any time. GAPP is managed by the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH).  



GAPP services comes at NO COST to the members of Medicaid or Katie Beckett.   The Katie Beckett Waiver takes parents' income out of the picture and bases the decision on the child's needs. If the child qualifies for the Katie Beckett Waiver, they become eligible for services available under the regular state Medicaid plan.
