Payment for Services
CCS authorizes and pays for services related to a child’s or youth’s medical condition. CCS is not a health insurance program. However, CCS covers services that are not otherwise covered by Medi-Cal or private insurance. Learn more about financial eligibility on this page.
There is no financial eligibility for the CCS Medical Therapy Program (MTP).
Each time the child or youth needs to see a new doctor, get new medication, or equipment, a Service Authorization Request form (SAR) needs to be completed. The medical provider will fill out the SAR and send it to CCS. You will be notified by mail when the services have been approved. You can contact CCS to find out the status of a SAR. How to Read a SAR
