Healthy Families Program
State Announces Initial County Transition Plan
The state released the list of counties that will comprise the first phase of the transition of about 800,000 Healthy Families Program children to Medi-Cal in 2013.
The exact date of the transition is pending federal approval, but the 2012-13 Budget Act authorized the state to begin transitioning children as soon as January 1, 2013. The legislation outlined four phases, and the state has divided the first phase into A and B components.
