California DHS Outreach Effort – COVID-19 Uninsured Group

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) released a toolkit in English and Spanish for DHCS Coverage Ambassadors and other partners to help encourage members of the COVID-19 Uninsured Group (UIG) program to enroll in ongoing health coverage through Medi-Cal (Medicaid) or Covered California (the state’s official health insurance Marketplace) after the UIG program ends. During the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), more than 500,000 Californians were able to obtain temporary health coverage for COVID testing and treatment through the UIG program, which will end with the end of the federal PHE.
