We have a wonderful opportunity via the Children's Health Initiative and One e-App to help
families find a medical home and to receive preventative care as this helps avoid high cost to
One-e-App takes in the important information about the families applying for coverage
(including but not limited to name, address, date of birth, and income). One-e-App allows
for the application to be taken in by a Certified Application Assistor (CAA). One-e-App
completes the calculation for them and then displays a "Preliminary Eligibility Result".
Once the family is aware of what their child(ren) may be eligible for, they can choose
what they would like to submit an application for. From that point the application is
routed to the appropriate program (Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, or Healthy Kids) for
final determination of eligibility.
One-e-App helps to minimize mistakes in applications as well as making sure that the
right application is completed as opposed to submitting for all programs just to find out
what program may be applicable.
Because of the use of One-e-App over 4,000 children have successfully applied for
Medi-Cal, Healthy Families and Healthy Kids.
