Medical Care for Kansas City Foster Children

In partnership with FosterAdopt Connect, developmental pediatrician Dr. Michele Kilo brings responsive medical care for developmental, behavioral, and mental health issues to Kansas City area foster and adopted children. The design of this practice allows Dr. Kilo to spend the time needed to get to know the children and teens' medical and familial history, their history of trauma, and the individual needs of the child within the context of the family which they are being loved and nurtured. This comprehensive approach allows Dr. Kilo to form a holistic view of each patient as she works through issues which include:

  • Diagnosis
  • School environment
  • Learning and behavioral accommodations
  • Medication management
  • And more

Increased Access and Affordability

This new monthly membership program is reasonably priced through a sliding scale based on taxable income (foster care and adoption subsidies are excluded). While this health membership does not accept insurance, prescriptions and other treatment done by referral would follow the child’s normal insurance coverage. We’re excited to offer this opportunity to foster and adoptive families because it gives parents increased access and responsiveness to their children’s mental health provider. It also gives parents the flexibility to bring all children to the doctor at the same time!

Monthly Membership Fees

The monthly membership fee is based on a family's taxable income. It does not include foster care or adoption subsidies.

  • Maximum total monthly family fee is $300.
  • 10% discount after the first child
  • No cancellation fees.
  • Must notify FosterAdopt Connect in writing to cancel and avoid the next month's charge.
