Special Programs - California Children Services
page. What is CCS? CCS is a statewide program that enables children with qualifying conditions to receive specialized services related to that condition independent from IEHP. The CCS program provides diagnostic and treatment services, and medical case management for those who have qualifying conditions. CCS also provides occupational and physical therapy services through the Medical Therapy Program (MTP). The Medical Therapy Program (MTP) is a special program that provides physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), for children who have disabling conditions, generally due to neurological or musculoskeletal disorders Who Qualifies? The CCS program services children and young adults under the age of 21 who have eligible medical conditions. Examples of CCS-eligible conditions include, but are not limited to, chronic and acute medical conditions such as cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, cerebral palsy, heart disease, cancer, traumatic injuries, and infectious diseases producing major sequelae. For a more inclusive list of diagnoses and medical criteria of qualifying conditions please reference the below links: https://www.dhcs.ca.gov/services/ccs https://www.dhcs.ca.gov/services/ccs/Documents/CCSMedicalEligibility.pdf Provider Responsibilities Primary Care Physicians (PCPs), Specialty Providers, and IPA/Medical Groups are responsible for performing appropriate baseline health assessments and diagnostic evaluations sufficient to identify children and young adults with potential CCS-qualifying conditions and refer to CCS as needed. PCPs are responsible for all well child and pediatric preventative services as these services are not a covered benefit of CCS. PCPs are also responsible in assisting CCS members with transition from CCS to IEHP authorizations at the age of 21 when members age out of the CCS program. Benefits of CCS Enrollment CCS Clients are not restricted to in area providers but have access to any CCS paneled provider within the state of California when a need for the specialty care has been determined to be CCS eligible. Once a client is determined to be eligible for CCS, the client will continue to be medically eligible for CCS until treatment is complete or age 21 when the CCS program ends. Additional Resources To assist our valued Providers, every Member active with CCS has a distinct red “CCS” widget in the Provider Portal. Opening that widget enables you to view the diagnosis being treated and any Specialists and their treatment authorization range.
