  • All California children currently enrolled in the HFP will transition to the Medi-Cal Program

Number of Healthy Families Children under 5 years of age

There are approximately 145,000 WIC aged children that are being transitioned from HFP to Medi-Cal

We estimate that there approximately 60,000 HFP children already on WIC.

However, this number is probably much higher based on how we collect information in ISIS.



Adjunctive eligibility1
Adjunctive Eligibility

Abbreviated version

WIC Federal Regulations (7 CFR 246.7)

Adjunct or automatic income eligibility

The State agency shall accept as income-eligible for the Program any applicant who is certified as fully eligible or presumptively eligible pending completion of eligibility for medical assistance under a Title XIX of the Social Security Act program.


Adjunctive eligibility2
Adjunctive Eligibility

When a Healthy Families beneficiary transitions to Medi-Cal, they become adjunctively eligible.

Until they are transitioned into Medi-Cal, you will still need to verify their income.

All Healthy Families beneficiaries should be transitioned to Medi-Cal by December 2013.

New Aid Codes: 5C, 5D, H1, H2, H3, H4, H5

These codes have already been programmed in ISIS

Medi-Cal may be adding new aid codes; if so, we will be notified and will update ISIS immediately
