CCHIP Transitions to MCP System with Administrative Vendor Change

August 6, 2019

Effective October 1, 2019, the delivery of benefits for the County Children’s Health Initiative Program (CCHIP), also known as Healthy Kids, will transition from their local plan to the Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan (MCP) system. MAXIMUS, the new administrative vendor, will be responsible for case management and premium billing/collection. The California Healthcare Eligibility, Enrollment and Retention System (CalHEERS) will continue to identify eligible children in the three CCHIP counties (Santa Clara, San Mateo, and San Francisco). For further information, call the MAXIMUS dedicated phone line for CCHIP beneficiaries at 1-833-912-2447.
