CCS Whole Child Model

CA Children’s Services and the Whole Child Model

Fact Sheets, Webinar Slides, and More

If your child is covered by both California Children’s Services (CCS) and Medi-Cal, their CCS benefits will be administered differently under the Whole Child Model if you live in one of the following 21 Whole Child Model Counties:

Phase I (July 1, 2018): Merced, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, San Mateo
Phase II (January 1, 2019): Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Marin, Mendocino, Modoc, Napa, Siskiyou, Shasta, Solano, Sonoma, Trinity, Yolo
Phase III (July 1, 2019): Orange

This means that your Medi-Cal managed care plan will now authorize and pay for services related to your child’s CCS -qualifying condition. This includes things like appointments, services, and treatments with your child’s specialists, prescription medications, and durable medical equipment (DME).
