The Final Evaluation of the Health Care Coverage Initiative in California has been released!

The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research was selected to evaluate the Health Care Coverage Initiative (HCCI), a ten-county experimental program to extend health care coverage to more than 230,000 low-income uninsured adults who were not otherwise eligible for public programs such as Medi-Cal. This report presents findings based on data received by UCLA from the participating counties as of April 30, 2012 and from DHCS as of July 19, 2012. The report details program implementation and operation, the counties' success in expanding coverage and in expanding the safety-net structure to accommodate the newly insured, innovations in access to, and quality of, care, as well as the program's income and expenditures.
