Transition Planning

Transition Planning: Ages 14, 16, 18, and 20

CCS is here to help prepare you and your family for the transition from pediatric to adult health care services. It’s never too early to start thinking about your future medical care.  Here are a few suggestions that may be helpful for a successful transition plan. 

How does CCS help with transition planning?

If you or your child have a health condition that may last beyond age 21, the Butte County CCS staff encourages parents and clients to start planning for transitioning out of the CCS program.

If you are a Butte County CCS client between the ages of 14 and 21, you are encouraged to call the Butte County CCS office at 530-552-3891. A Nurse Case Manager is available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm to assist with questions about transition planning and CCS authorized services.

Please complete the skills checklist before contacting your Nurse Case Manager for transition planning.
