The California Health Access Model Program (CHAMP) is a one-time program enacted in July 2012 that supports innovative methods to deliver health care. The goal is to improve access and health outcomes for vulnerable populations and communities by bringing services, including preventive services, to individuals where they live or congregate.

At its January 30, 2014 meeting, CHFFA approved a demonstration project grant for the San Francisco Health Plan (SFHP) for up to $1,500,000. SFHP’s proposed project aimed to expand and evaluate an existing pilot program for high-risk, high-cost patients to improve their health outcomes and experience of care, as well as to lower costs.

This program is no longer accepting applications. No future allocations or funding rounds are scheduled.

Replication of SFHP’s Community Based Care Management (CBCM) model has been achieved by the Department of Health Care Services through the Health Homes Program and the Whole Person Care Program; therefore, the Authority chose not to replicate the CBCM model.
