This program offers further diagnosis or medical treatment for children with specific medical conditions, usually of a more serious or chronic nature. It provides expert medical care from a wide array of pediatric specialists who are in the California CCS system, including large children's medical centers.
Personal case management helping families access these medical specialists and some financial assistance is provided through the local CCS office if eligible. The child must be a California resident, have a specific medical condition or concern, and may be required to meet other financial requirements.
Also, therapy services and evaluations such as physical and occupational therapy, durable medical equipment, and bracing are available when the child is eligible.
