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 the California Health Facilities Financing Authority (CHFFA) January 30, 2014 meeting, the Authority approved a demonstration project grant for the San Francisco Health Plan (SFHP) for up to $1,500,000. SFHP’s proposed project aims 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.

CHFFA is reviewing options for additional CHAMP funding rounds.

California Health Access Model Program awardees must comply with California’s prevailing wage law under Labor Code section 1720, et seq. for public works projects. CHFFA recommends applicants and awardees consult with their legal counsel.
