California Children Services

What We Do


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. This tax supported program authorizes and pays for specific medical services and rehabilitation for children by CCS approved specialists and has a Medical Therapy Program.
