Other Public Funding Sources



From SSI to California Children’s Services, there are many sources of funding to supplement your private insurance. Check out these resources to learn whether your child is eligible and how to take advantage of these programs to meet your child's support needs.

Who is eligible for California Children’s Services (CCS)?

CCS can be an important avenue of assistance for children with significant medical needs who are not Regional Center clients. Children under age 21 who have a medical condition from a specific list and whose family income is under a certain threshold can qualify for CCS services. Note that family income is NOT a factor for children who need diagnostic services to confirm they have a CCS-eligible medical condition, were adopted with a known CCS-eligible medical condition, or are applying only for services through the Medical Therapy Program, which can provide occupational and physical therapies free of charge. Learn more in our article about CCS.
