Through the Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program, children and youth receive routine regular preventive health exams in order to identify health problems. Many problems can be prevented, corrected or the severity reduced by prompt diagnosis and treatment. CHDP health exams are provided by doctors and clinics enrolled in the CHDP Program.
The Oral Public Health Program (OPHP) works with community partners to improve the conditions for oral health in San Mateo County, particularly for those facing historical and systemic barriers to oral health.
The OPHP currently focuses on reaching: pregnant people, parents/ primary caregivers of infants and children ages 0-5, and children eligible for Medi-Cal health and dental insurance.
California Children’s Services (CCS) is a tax supported statewide program that helps children and young adults up to 21 years old who have certain medical conditions. Services include arranging, directing, and paying for medical care, occupational and physical therapy, equipment, and rehabilitation.
CCS is not a health insurance plan. It will only cover CCS eligible conditions and not all of a child’s health care needs. There are also certain financial requirements for some of the services provided.
