What is the Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program?

The Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program is a health promotion and prevention program serving California’s infants, children, and teens. The CHDP Program provides periodic preventive health assessments to:

  • Children under age 21 with Medi-Cal.
  • Non-Medi-Cal eligible children from birth to age 19 with family incomes at or below 266% of the Federal Income Guidelines and no source of health care coverage for preventive health care services.
  • Children enrolled in Head Start and state preschool programs.

Children identified with suspected problems after a health assessment are referred for necessary diagnosis and treatment. Many problems can be prevented, corrected, or reduced in severity by prompt diagnosis and treatment. Early, Periodic, Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) services are a benefit provided through the CHDP Program.
