ACWDL 13-03: Screening of (1) Child Applicants in the Age Group 6-18 for Potential No Cost Medi-Cal Eligibility Under Section 1931(b) and (2) Deemed Eligible Medi-Cal Infants Under the Age of One
This letter is the result of the lawsuit filed by Maternal Health and Child Access (MCHA) against DHCS and MRMIB for failing to refer Healthy Families applicants who applied through the Single Point of Entry (SPE) to Medi-Cal for 1931(b) screening and for failing to implement deemed infant screening procedures. Because Healthy Families is no longer enrolling new applicants as of January 1, 2013, all applications are being forwarded to Medi-Cal anyway. However, MRMIB is conducting outreach to current HFP families who may have been impacted and advising them that they may complete a Premium Reevaluation form to be screened for 1931(b) eligibility.
