California Children’s Services (CCS)

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.
