HEALTHY KIDS MENDOCINO

Healthy Kids Mendocino is working to ensure that all children in Mendocino County have access to health insurance coverage. We're reaching out to families in need of health insurance and making it easier for them to enroll in Medi-Cal and Healthy Families.

This is a collaborative effort by FIRST 5 Mendocino, Alliance for Rural Community Health, Mendocino County Office of Educaction, the Mendocino County Health and Human Services Agency and many others to keep our children healthy by providing families with the resources and support they need.

Please join us!

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Healthy Families is Moving to Medi-Cal!

Does your child have Healthy Families?

Starting August 2013, your child will be insured by Medi-Cal's Partnership HealthPlan.

  • Your child will NOT lose coverage!
  • The income levels for Medi-Cal will be raised to include Healthy Families children.
  • Continue to pay your premium!
  • Medi-Cal provides great benefits for your child!

Q: How will I know when my child's insurance will be moved to Medi-Cal?

A: You will receive a notice from the State before any changes happen.  The Partnership HealthPlan of California will also send you a new member packet.

Q: Will my child have the same benefits?

A: Yes, for the most part, benefits will remain the same.  Some things will even be better... You will no longer have to pay a co-pay for services, and retroactive benefits will now be available.

Q: Who do I call if I have questions about providers or benefits?

A: For Medical, Vision and Mental Health services: call Partnership HealthPlan at (800) 863-4155.  For Dental services, call Denti-Cal at (800) 322-6384.
