About JaxHATS

Jacksonville Health and Transition Services (JaxHATS)

The JaxHATS clinic is a "medical home" for youth, ages 16-26 with chronic medical or developmental problems in the counties of Duval, Nassau, Baker, Clay and St. Johns in Florida. JaxHATS has a multi-disciplinary staff that includes a pediatrician, adult internal medicine specialist, nurse care coordinators and a transition specialist who provide primary medical care to address the young person's immediate medical needs. The JaxHATS team also works with youth over time, to help them gain the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their long term life goals. Services provided by JaxHATS are covered by Medicaid, Children's Medical Services and most other health insurance plans.
