Helping all Orange County residents stay healthy by having access to health care coverage

Helping families navigate the complexities of today’s health care system is essential to a healthy community. Community Health Initiative of Orange County (CHI OC) is a non-profit agency dedicated to reducing the number of uninsured children in Orange County. CHI OC helps families by screening them for health care and social services programs, determining their eligibility and assisting them with the enrollment process. After families apply, CHI OC’s Health Access Staff members follow-up with them, ensure that they are able to access their covered benefits and that their coverage is renewed every year. Our CAAs are available to help clients throughout Orange County. Please call 714-619-4050 for assistance or more information.

Our Mission & Vision

To connect children, families and other adults to affordable and quality healthcare and social services

According to a recent report from Georgetown University, there are an estimated 745,000 uninsured children in California, with approximately 60,000 of those children residing in Orange County. These children are 9 times more likely to be hospitalized for a preventable condition, and can cost the county up to $25 million each year. Low-income communities are especially vulnerable to high rates of the uninsured, which negatively impacts quality of life and financial stability. By connecting children and families with low-cost or no-cost options for health care, we hope to get them the services they need, and in turn create a healthier, more successful future.

CHI OC assists children and families enroll into the following programs:

  Children’s Health Programs

  • Medi-Cal for Children and Pregnant Women
  • Medi-Cal for Families (Formerly Healthy Families)


   Adult Health Programs          

  • Medi-Cal for Adults
  • Covered California
  Social Services Programs                

  • CalFresh (Food Stamps)
  • CalWORKs (Cash Aid)

Thank you to our 2019 Health Champion Sponsors!
