California Children's Services
California Children's Services (CCS) is a program for people under 21 years of age with certain serious health problems. CCS arranges medical care for these special health care needs. California Children Services (CCS) provides medical care to children who are at risk for or who have serious, chronic and disabling physical conditions or diseases. Anyone can refer a child to CCS; but CCS will require medical reports and prescriptions for care from a physician in order to determine eligibility and authorize services.
CCS is a part of the California State Department of Health Care Services in the Children's Medical Service Branch. The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department administers CCS for Santa Barbara County. Other Counties have their own CCS Offices.
