DHCS Announces Webinars to Gather Input on Healthy Families Program (HFP) Transition Details

[Updated 11/1/12 with new resource links] Starting in January 2013, California will begin a year-long process to transfer children currently enrolled in the Healthy Families Program to Medi-Cal. To prepare for this transition and ensure continuity of quality care, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is holding several stakeholder webinars. This round of stakeholder meetings will be held on September 12 and 13, 2012.


HFP Transition Resources

The following resources are current as of 11/1/2012 (date pulled) and available on DHCS’ dedicated landing page for the Healthy Families Program transition. It is expected that this shift is likely to increase MAA claims for LEAs as a result of the increase in the size of the Medi-Cal population that they are serving.
