Parents’ Views of Children’s Health Insurance Programs: A Survey of Denied Applicants for Kaiser Permanente’s Child Health Plan
In 1997, Kaiser Permanente launched the Child Health Plan to provide subsidized health insurance for low income California children not eligible for Medi-Cal (California’s Medicaid program) or Healthy Families (California’s State Children’s Health Insurance Program). As part of a broader evaluation of the Child Health Plan funded jointly by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the California HealthCare Foundation, these reports provide findings from a survey of low income parents who were eligible for Medi-Cal or Healthy Families but applied to the Child Health Plan instead and were denied coverage because their incomes were too high. The study was conducted by researchers at the Institute for Health Policy Studies, University of California at San Francisco.
