California Children's Services (CCS)

Kids on Bench

California Children's Services (CCS) is a state program for children with certain diseases or health problems. Through this program, children up to 21 years old who qualify for the program, can get the health care and services they need. CCS helps to connect children with specialists who know how to care for children with special health care needs.

Services to qualified children may include payment for doctor visits, hospital stays, surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, tests, X-rays, medical equipment, and medical supplies. Learn more about how children can qualify.

CCS offers medical care coordination for eligible children to help them obtain special medical services. Learn more by viewing the CCS brochure:

Transition Planning for CCS Clients & Their Families

CCS is here to help prepare you and your family for the transition from pediatric to adult health care services. It’s never too early to start thinking about your future. As you or your child gets older, it’s important to think about transition planning. Is your child 14, 16, 18, or 20 years old?  

Please view the Transition Planning page to learn about resources available to you.
