123870.  (a) The department shall establish standards of financial
eligibility for treatment services under the California Children's
Services Program (CCS program).
   (1) Financial eligibility for treatment services under this
program shall be limited to persons in families with an adjusted
gross income of forty thousand dollars ($40,000) or less in the most
recent tax year, as calculated for California state income tax
purposes. If a person is enrolled in the Healthy Families Program
(Part 6.2 (commencing with Section 12693) of Division 2 of the
Insurance Code), the financial documentation required for that
program in Section 2699.6600 of Title 10 of the California Code of
Regulations may be used instead of the person's California state
income tax return. If a person is enrolled in the Medi-Cal program
pursuant to Section 14005.26 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, or
enrolled in the AIM-Linked Infants Program pursuant to Chapter 2
(commencing with Section 15850) of Part 3.3 of Division 9 of the
Welfare and Institutions Code, the financial documentation required
to establish eligibility for the respective programs may be used
instead of the person's California state income tax return. However,
the director may authorize treatment services for persons in families
with higher incomes if the estimated cost of care to the family in
one year is expected to exceed 20 percent of the family's adjusted
gross income.
   (2) Children enrolled in the Healthy Families Program, the
Medi-Cal program pursuant to Section 14005.26 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code, or the AIM-Linked Infants Program pursuant to
Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 15850) of Part 3.3 of Division 9
of the Welfare and Institutions Code, who have a CCS program eligible
medical condition under Section 123830, and whose families do not
meet the financial eligibility requirements of paragraph (1), shall
be deemed financially eligible for CCS program benefits.
   (b) Necessary medical therapy treatment services under the
California Children's Services Program rendered in the public schools
shall be exempt from financial eligibility standards and enrollment
fee requirements for the services when rendered to any handicapped
child whose educational or physical development would be impeded
without the services.
   (c) All counties shall use the uniform standards for financial
eligibility and enrollment fees established by the department. All
enrollment fees shall be used in support of the California Children's
Services Program.
   (d) Annually, every family with a child eligible to receive
services under this article shall pay a fee of twenty dollars ($20),
that shall be in addition to any other program fees for which the
family is liable. This assessment shall not apply to any child who is
eligible for full scope Medi-Cal benefits without a share of cost,
for children receiving therapy through the California Children's
Services Program as a related service in their individualized
education plans, for children from families having incomes of less
than 100 percent of the federal poverty level, or for children
covered under the Healthy Families Program or the AIM-Linked Infants
Program.
