Medi-Cal is the name of California’s Medicaid program which provides a public health insurance option to low-income individuals in the state. The program pays for health care services for groups like families with children, seniors, the disabled, foster care children, pregnant women, and low-income individuals with specific diseases like TB, breast cancer, and HIV/AIDS.

The Healthy Families program provides low-cost insurance to uninsured children who do not qualify for free Medi-Cal. Benefits include health, dental and vision coverage including specialist visits. Healthy Families will cover children: Up to their 19th birthday, who do not have health insurance through an employer based plan in the last 3 months, are living in California, are ineligible for or not enrolled in Medi-Cal, who meet citizenship or immigration restrictions, are in families with incomes within the program income guidelines, or are born to mothers enrolled in the AIM program.

MRMIP (Major Risk Medical Insurance Program) is a program administered by the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board which provides basic health coverage for Californians with pre-existing conditions which have rendered them medically uninsurable on the individual insurance market. Residents who qualify participate in the cost of coverage by paying premiums which are supplemented by the state to cover the cost of care for the program. In order to be eligible, one must be a California resident, not be eligible for both part A and part B of Medicare, unless eligible solely because of end-stage renal disease, not be eligible to purchase any health insurance for continuation of benefits under COBRA of CalCOBRA, and unable to secure adequate coverage.
Due to funding limitations, MRMIP does have a waiting list. For more information please visit their website at http://www.mrmib.ca.gov/MRMIB/MRMIP.shtml
