Health Care Coverage Initiative
The Demonstration authorizes the State of California to create a Health Care Coverage Initiative in ten selected counties during Fiscal Year (FY) 2007-08 through FY 2009-10 to expand health care coverage for eligible low-income, uninsured individuals using an annual allotment of federal funds from the Safety Net Care Pool (SNCP). Selected counties certify their public expenditures to claim federal funding to reimburse their health care services costs. The selected counties also will receive federal reimbursement for administrative costs associated with the implementation and ongoing administration of the coverage initiative programs. This funding is separate from the SNCP funding that is available.
