Access to Care Through California Children’s Services During COVID-19

Executive Summary

You can keep getting medically necessary California Children’s Services (CCS) during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has put in place temporary flexibilities for both Medi-Cal and CCS, to make sure children get services easily and safely during the PHE. Children can still get their CCS annual medical review, well-child visits, High Risk Infant Follow-Up Services, physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), durable medical equipment (DME) and supplies, and all other CCS-qualified services.
