 "Working Together for Children's Health and Well Being"

Children's Medical Services provides health examinations, medical care, rehabilitation services, and follow-up medical treatment for children who are low-income or have Medi-Cal. 

 

Good health is the greatest gift children can have. Unfortunately, many children in California, especially low and moderate income children, have health problems and unmet health needs:

  • 40% of children in low income families suffer from one or more health problems.
  • 14% of all children over age 5 have acute dental problems.
  • 60% of all preschool children are inadequately immunized.
  • 4% of all children entering school have vision problems.
