Low Income Health Program (LIHP)
Welcome to the Low Income Health Program (LIHP) resource page. The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) in coordination with California Stakeholders and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has received approval of the Section 1115 Medicaid Demonstration, entitled “California’s Bridge to Reform,” effective November 1, 2010, through October 31, 2015.
This demonstration includes the LIHP (also known as Coverage Expansion and Enrollment Demonstration (CEED), and encompasses Medicaid Coverage Expansion (MCE) and Health Care Coverage Initiative (HCCI) populations.
DHCS has created an e-mail service (listserv) for interested stakeholders such as advocates, consumers, counties, legislative staff, providers, and state associations to register to receive relevant updates on department program initiatives or new projects where stakeholder input is desired. This e-mail service will be used to notify interested stakeholders on the waiver renewal efforts.
