California Healthy Families Plan cleans up waiting list

January 22, 2010

At the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board (MRMIB) public meeting on December 16, 2009, staff reported that the HFP wait list had been cleared and all wait list applications had been processed. The MRMIB was able to determine that there was sufficient program funding to reopen the HFP to new enrollment when additional funds were allocated by the First 5 Commission; Managed Care Fee implemented by Chapter 157, Statutes of 2009; and changes that reduced program costs.

At its peak the HFP wait list reached approximately 50,000 applications and had approximately 93,000 children on it. It accumulated during the two month period that the HFP was closed to new enrollment (July 17, 2009-September 17, 2009). Since the HFP reopened to new enrollment, over 80,000 children have been enrolled to-date
