CHDP Gateway to Health Coverage

If your child is eligible, he or she can get health care services paid for by Medi-Cal until the end of the month following the application.  CHDP Gateway allows providers to pre-enroll children into temporary, full-scope, no cost Medi-Cal based on apparent eligibility.  Services include dental, vision, prescriptions, doctor visits, and more.*  You may apply for Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, or Healthy Kids to continue the health coverage.  Until Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, Healthy Kids or other insurance is in place, CHDP Gateway will help you get the health care your child needs when sick, and the care he or she needs to stay healthy.

*Subject to provider participation.
