Through the Medi-Cal Health Navigator Project, The Center is conducting outreach and education activities to help facilitate Medi-Cal enrollment and retention in Amador, Calaveras, Lassen and Solano counties.
Populations of focus include households and individuals who are eligible for Medi-Cal, such as people with mental health disorder needs, substance use disorder needs and other disabilities, aged persons, homeless individuals and families, young people of color, immigrants and families of mixed immigration status, people with limited English proficiency, low-wage workers and their families or dependents, uninsured children, youth formerly enrolled in Medi-Cal, and people who are in county jail, on county probation, in state prison, on state parole or under post-release community supervision.
Goal 1: Eligible beneficiaries in the four counties are enrolled in Medi-Cal as a direct result of being educated by or receiving assistance from health navigators.
Goal 2: Individuals on Medi-Cal in the four counties will continue to be enrolled for ongoing Medi-Cal benefits as a direct result of the Health Navigator Project.
Goal 3: Develop a four-county coalition with the infrastructure and capacity to advance and document the project’s enrollment and retention goals.
We will post project updates on this web page.
Funding for this project is from the California Department of Health Care Services. The Center at Sierra Health Foundation is administering the project.
