Consultative services for health care providers
The best strategies, care structures, processes, and outcomes result when patients, families and health care providers form trusting, caring partnerships and draw upon one another’s perspectives and experience. We are looking for community pediatric practices that are interested in working with the Beacon Program to partner in the care of children with medical complexity (CMC) to improve their care.
What are we asking from you?
Continue to care for children with medical complexity with Medicaid as their payer as you currently do.
Co-manage CMCs with Medicaid that are accepted into the Beacon program. You will remain the primary care provider, but now have the additional services and supports from the Beacon Team.
We feel the consultative service offers an opportunity to demonstrate the true value of what we do for this vulnerable population of children. We hope you will join this important collaborative effort and help to transform the care for children with medical complexity in Kansas and Missouri. If you are interested in referring a patient, please complete the appropriate referral form below.
Forms for consultative services
We utilize two forms in our referral process:
If the patient that you are referring has any specialists outside of the Children's Mercy system, the Beacon Program will need to receive those outside records before being able to schedule the patient for an appointment. The Beacon Program will also need records from the child's outside primary care provider. Please fill out the authorization for release of medical information form for each provider to ensure all records are received. In the "information to be sent to" section, please put the following information:
Fax: (816) 302-9738
3101 Broadway 10th Floor
Kansas City, MO 64111
A completed Authorization for Release of Medical Information Form can be sent via email, mailed to the address above, faxed to the fax number above, or dropped off by the parent. Please note that the Beacon program cannot pick up records.
