How to Qualify

Certain criteria must be met in order to qualify for services:

 

  • Potential patients must be California residents
  • Age 18 and under
  • Demonstrate financial need.    CSPSERF is using the Covered California income guidelines to establish financial need, i.e. a family of four should have an income of $95,400 or less in order to be eligible under CSPSERF's reconstructive surgery for children program.

What services does the CSPSERF program offer specifically?

The program is designed to help children who are afflicted with a physical abnormality/condition that can be corrected with reconstructive plastic surgery.  The goal is to have the child's condition corrected to allow the child to enjoy an improved quality of life, improve self-esteem and lead healthier, happier, more productive lives.
