4125 - COUNTY HEALTH INITIATIVE MATCHING FUND PROGRAM
The County Health Initiative Matching Fund Program provides health coverage for eligible children up to age 19 in families with incomes between 250 and 400 percent of the federal poverty level that are not eligible for Medi-Cal or the Healthy Families Program. Coverage is provided through county-sponsored insurance programs, which provide comprehensive benefits similar to the Healthy Families Program. Program costs are funded by matching county expenditures with federal funds in participating counties that have been approved by the federal government. The Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board manages the intergovernmental transfer of federal funds, and the counties administer the program. Effective July 1, 2014, this program was transferred to the Department of Health Care Services.
