Santa Clara Family Health Plan
June 25, 2010
Santa Clara Family Health Plan does an amazing job of getting and keeping children insured in Santa Clara County. SCFHP insures the low-income children in our community through Healthy Families, Medi-Cal and Healthy Kids, a locally funded health insurance product unique in Santa Clara County. SCFHP was instrumental in the public-private partnership that created Healthy Kids. Healthy Kids is designed to provide comprehensive health insurance for those who do not qualify for existing programs and are financially unable to purchase coverage. Data shows that Healthy Kids and the other health insurance products offered by SCFHP have improved child outcomes such as school attendance and have decreased parents' worry about what they will do if their chid becomes ill. SCFHP has brought fantastic results for children in Santa Clara County.
