FHCN Enrollment Counselors Offer Free Assistance for Medi-Cal Expansion

Visalia, CA – Family HealthCare Network’s (FHCN) team of enrollment counselors are offering free enrollment assistance as Medi-Cal announces extended coverage to undocumented children in California. With health centers throughout Tulare and Kings Counties, FHCN’s enrollment counselors are assisting local individuals and families in applying for, and selecting health insurance plans. As of May 1, 2016, children under 19 years-of-age are now eligible for full-scope Medi-Cal benefits, regardless of immigration status.

The Medi-Cal expansion is part of the new SB 75 signed by Governor Jerry Brown and allows undocumented children who meet income requirements to receive full-scope Medi-Cal coverage. Full-scope coverage includes low-cost preventive services, such as vaccines and wellness visits, as well as doctor visits, prescription drugs, eye exams and glasses, dental services, hospitalization, and emergency services.

Enrollment counselors are now available at each of FHCN’s 16 health centers in Visalia, Porterville, Hanford, Tulare, Goshen, Woodlake, Cutler-Orosi, Ivanhoe, Farmersville, Three Rivers, Terra Bella, Traver, and Springville, as well as at its Resource Center in Porterville. For more information, or to make an appointment, call the FHCN enrollment line at (559) 741-4366, or visit any FHCN health center to speak with a counselor regarding new coverage options.
