About California Children's Services (CCS) Program
CCS Program

Los Angeles County CCS is part of the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health.

We work with:

   - Private insurance
   - Medi-Cal
   - Healthy Families, and
   - Healthy Kids

to provide services that they do not provide. We are the "payer of last resort" for your child's CCS-eligible condition. That means, if you have any of the list above, we will find out if they can pay before we do.
