For Jaclyn Larson, caring for her son became a primary focus after he suffered a traumatic brain injury during a car accident several years ago. He was 2 years old at the time. The injury left him cognitively and physically disabled.


He’s now 8 years old and is very medically-involved. He sees numerous specialists throughout the year. Jaclyn is able to cover her son’s medical needs thanks to the health insurance he has through the Children Rehabilitative Services program, which is offered through AHCCCS and is designed for children with complex healthcare needs. “It would be devastating if we didn’t have this health insurance, which also covers for him to get rehabilitative services, like therapy, and he’s doing so much better because of it,” she said.
