Ventura County – MEDS & Medi-Cal Eligibilty
Submitted by: Derrick Wilson
The MEDS unit receives monthly alerts of children who are Deemed Eligible for Medi-Cal that need to be added to the mother's case. Sometimes it is very difficult to identify the correct mother, especially with common names, and previously in our legacy system the name was the only way to search for the client.
CalWIN helps by allowing us to search by CIN and also by address, resulting in faster, narrower and more accurate results. This allows us to promptly notify the caseworker of the baby's birth and ensure the child receives appropriate benefits
