Genetically Handicapped Persons Program

The Genetically Handicapped Persons Program (GHPP) is a health care program for adults with certain genetic diseases. The GHPP helps people who are on GHPP with their health care needs. The GHPP works with doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other members of the health care team in providing many types of health services.

NOTE: When you submit the GHPP application, it is very important that you include your prior year’s Federal Tax Form 1040. If you are a dependent on another person’s tax return, that return must be submitted. If you do not submit a complete application, GHPP staff will not be able to authorize GHPP services that are beyond your eligibility period.


Effective immediately, the Genetically Handicapped Persons Program has a new fax number. Please forward all requests for client services, including GHPP initial and renewal applications, and all required supporting documents to 916-440-5318. On June 1, 2013, we will no longer accept faxes on the old fax numbers [(916) 327 1112 and (916) 327 0670)].
