Health Works of Illinois (HWIL)

HealthWorks of Illinois (HWIL) is a collaborative effort between DCFS, HFS and YouthCare HealthChoice Illinois to ensure that children in the protective custody of DCFS receive quality healthcare services that meet their individual needs. Medical case management is provided for youth in care age 0-6 assuring DCFS health care requirements for well child exams, immunizations, dental care, and hearing and vision screenings are met. This is accomplished by the medical case manager collecting and reviewing medical records, collaborating with foster parents and providing these medical records and a health summary to the assigned DCFS case worker biannually
