ADVOCATE

As a leading community impact organization, United Way knows that real and sustained change in

community conditions requires more than money. United Way engages decision-makers and policy

leaders at the local, state and national levels to help address the most important community needs.

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

emergency care.

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.

Tell your family and friends!

 

We need your help spreading the word about the needs of local kids and the many ways people in our community can

make a difference. Share the statistics. Tell a story. Or just post or tweet how you plan to help a child in Fresno County.

When you advocate, your single voice can influence many...and truly change the lives of those in our community.

 

It's easy, it's powerful, and anyone can help.

 

Here is one way to spread the word! Post these status updates to your facebook or send out a tweet:

 

* Did you know that 1 in 5 kids in Fresno County live in poverty? Help United Way to change the future by taking the

Challenge for the Children!

 

 

*I'm helping to give disadvantaged kids in my community a hand up. Will you? Check out the Challenge for the

 Children http://kidscoverage.challenge.gov/

 
 Click to find out more! Take the Challenge!

 

Did you know that there are roughly five million uninsured children

who are eligible for Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP),  but who are not enrolled? The Department of Health and Human Services is challenging the public to enroll uninsured children in Medicaid or CHIP coverage. Click the image on the left to learn how you can help!
