Child Health and Disability Program
The Child Health & Disability Prevention Program (CHDP) is a health promotion and disease prevention program serving San Benito County’s infants, children, and teens.  Children identified with suspected problems after a health assessment are referred for necessary diagnosis and treatment.

Eligibility for the CHDP program
Infants, children, and teens with Medi-Cal are eligible for CHDP services. Children up to age 20 with Medi-Cal are eligible to receive CHDP services. Children enrolled in Medi-Cal managed care plans receive these services through their health plan. Children enrolled in fee-for-service Medi-Cal may receive CHDP services provided by CHDP enrolled Medi-Cal providers.

Income-Eligible (not Medi-Cal eligible) Infants, Children, and Teens
CHDP provides periodic preventative health assessments to income eligible children from birth to 18 years of age who are not in the Medi-Cal program.  The CHDP program also uses the CHDP Gateway, which electronically screens and temporarily enrolls eligible children in fee-for-service, full-scope Medi-Cal. Families must complete a Covered California Application to continue health insurance coverage. Low-income children not eligible for Medi-Cal may continue to receive CHDP services according to the periodicity schedule.
