California Children Services (CCS) provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment services for children with certain physically disabling medical conditions. CCS is a statewide program that treats children with certain physical limitations and chronic conditions or diseases.
Most physically handicapping conditions are eligible for benefits under the CCS Program. The CCS Program is funded by state, county and federal tax money, along with some fees paid by the parents.

Has or may have a medical condition that is covered by CCS
Has a family income of less than $40,000 reported as adjusted gross income on state tax return
