Healthy Families Program
This program is administered
by the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board (MRMIB).
What is the Annual Eligibility Review (AER)?
Each year you will be asked to renew your child's coverage for Healthy Families. We will notify you by mail of the Annual Eligibility Review process. You will receive a notice about 60 calendar days before the end of your family's anniversary date in Healthy Families. In the notice, we will ask you to verify your family size and income. We must receive your AER Form and income papers by the due date on the packet. If the child still qualifies for the program, coverage will continue for another 12 months. Each time you add a new child and the child qualifies in the program, you re-qualify all your children who are already enrolled in Healthy Families for another 12 months. The eligibility review date for your children will be 12 months from the date your last child is enrolled. The monthly premium will be recalculated. The new premium may change depending on the household income.
You can also submit your AER form online through Health-e-App. Go to www.healtheapp.net for more information.
What if my income is lower?
If your child does not re-qualify for the program during AER because your household income is below the program’s guidelines, Healthy Families will forward your AER form to Medi-Cal. Your child may receive free temporary health coverage from Medi-Cal. If your child qualifies, your child's free temporary Medi-Cal coverage will continue until Medi-Cal makes a decision.
