California Children's Services (CCS) - Whole Child Model
CCS is a state program that treats children under 21 years of age with certain health conditions, diseases or chronic health problems and who meet the CCS program rules. If CenCal Health or your PCP believes your child has a CCS condition, he or she will be referred to the local county CCS program.
CCS program staff will decide if your child qualifies for CCS services. If your child qualifies to get this type of care, CenCal Health’s Whole Child Pediatric Unit will refer your child to specialty CCS Whole Child Model providers who will treat him or her for their specific CCS condition. CenCal Health will coordinate all medical care services for your child for both their CCS condition and those other services such as physicals, vaccines and well-child checkups.
