Promoting Public Benefits Access Through Web-Based Tools and Outreach: A National Scan of Efforts. Volume II: Detailed Summary Tables of Benefits Access Efforts. Health-e-App



Health-e-App is the State of California's publicly accessible web-based enrollment application for CHIP and Medicaid for children and pregnant women. It was piloted in 2001 in San Diego and implemented statewide in 2002. Originally used by state Certified Application Assistors across California to submit applications on behalf of families electronically, Health-e-App has been available since 2010 for self-service use as well and includes a benefits screener. Health-e-App is the precursor to One-e-App (described separately in Section B). The California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) developed Health-e-App in consultation with Deloitte and licensed it to Social Interest Solutions (SIS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to leveraging technology innovation to improve consumers’ quality of life. It is now operated by Maximus.
