About CaliforniaKids

CaliforniaKids Healthcare Foundation was founded in 1992 with the mission to provide uninsured children access to basic health care services.

CaliforniaKids is an independent non-profit organization that provides comprehensive outpatient preventive and primary medical and dental insurance for children ages 2 through 18

CaliforniaKids is a broad-based community program partnering with corporations, private industry, foundations, health care providers, and community organizations.

CaliforniaKids has served more than 85,000 children who are not eligible for government-sponsored health care programs and whose parents cannot afford the high-cost of private medical insurance.

CaliforniaKids partners with community organizations to identify and enroll eligible children.

Our partners include:

  • School Nurses
  • Head Start and Healthy Start Programs
  • Child Health, Disability, and Prevention Program (CHDP)
  • Access for Infants and Mothers (AIM)
  • Faith Community
  • Community Volunteers
  • Providers
  • Agents and Brokers

CaliforniaKids has contracted over 1,000 health care providers and 80% of the pharmacies throughout California to provide services to our members.

Monthly premium payments are required for participating families and minimal co-payments are required at the time services are rendered

Successes of the CaliforniaKids program include:

  • Cost-effective services
  • Provides the child with a “medical home”
  • Member satisfaction
  • Maintaining the family’s dignity
  • Reduction in school absenteeism rates
  • Reduction in parent’s absenteeism rates at work/higher productivity
  • Child’s self-esteem is enhanced
  • Peace of mind for the parents
