Our History

Care Options for Kids (COFK) began operating in Dallas in 1999 and was one of the earliest providers of pediatric home health therapy in Texas. A leader in therapy in Texas and a key collaborator with Managed Care Organizations and regulators, COFK provides services for children who exhibit moderate to severe delays and disorders. Services include providing medically necessary speech, physical or occupational therapy as prescribed by the child’s primary care physician. The majority of children served are birth to age 10. However, the Agency is licensed to treat children from birth to 21 years of age. COFK only provides services through W-2 employees and never contracts its therapy. Today, COFK serves more children in Texas home health therapy than any provider of its kind.

Culture is the cornerstone at COFK and its success. Our core values of integrity, commitment, compassion, care, excellence, trust and a servant leadership foundation drive the way we work with our employees and partners. Our dedication to values, our strong purposeful culture, and our solid clinical reputation have resulted in an established leadership position in our field of expertise and a greater demand for our services.

COFK is part of a family of organizations who collaborate to bring excellence, efficiency and efficacy to Medicaid and therapy in Texas. Through independent clinical research, which began in 2012, COFK along with its partners including two licensed physicians/medical advisors, perform continuing ground breaking, innovative research. This research has been selected for presentation to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Public Health Association as well as recognized by several managed care groups and regulatory bodies.

Today, COFK provides services to patients in Dallas, Fort Worth, Waco, Temple, Belton, Killeen, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Abilene, Amarillo, and Lubbock, Texas. Whether you are a family with a child in need, a physician desiring to make a therapy referral, or a prospective employee who wants to work for only the best, you will find your experience with Care Options for Kids a satisfying and rewarding one.
