Through a special program allocation from the Department of Health Care Services, San Bernardino County Transitional Assistance Department (TAD) partnered with Loma Linda University (LLU) in 2020 to promote and expand the Medi-Cal program by reaching out to targeted uninsured high-risk populations. The Health Navigators program resulted in the successful completion of approximately 1,500 Medi-Cal applications directly linked to outreach at community events from November 2020 to January 2022, and is continuing to offer services throughout the region.
