Description: The Children's Health Initiative seeks to reach all uninsured children in Santa Clara County whose families have incomes at or below 300% of the federal poverty level. Through an extensive outreach and enrollment design, workers and volunteers discuss the benefits of health insurance for children with families, evaluate the families' eligibility, and then assist the family in enrolling their child/children in the appropriate health insurance program (Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, or Healthy Kids). This project includes education and training support for staff, a Children's Health Initiative Toll-Free Telephone Line, and a walk-in Center providing outreach and application assistance information to enrollees in three languages (English, Spanish and Vietnamese).
