Cancellation of Children's Health Insurance Program Aid Codes E2, E4 and E5

June 30, 2014

The state received guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that children losing eligibility due to the loss of income disregards in the state’s Medi-Cal program could be retained instead of creating a separate Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

As a result of the above, aid codes E2, E4 and E5 are no longer in use. Counties with children who were enrolled into a CHIP through aid code E2, E4 or E5 will be issued instructions for evaluating and moving these children into an appropriate Medi-Cal program.
