MSI is a Federal, State and County funded healthcare program that provides medical care for Orange County's low-income citizens. It provides a full range of medical services for County residents 19 through 64 years of age. All program participants are assigned to a "medical home" that coordinates all aspects of their care and assures the appropriate referral to other providers as needed.
The MSI program contracts with all of the County's key clinics and hospitals and provides integrated care through contractual relationships with surgery centers, skilled nursing facilities, urgent care facilities, "minute clinics" and a variety of diagnostic centers and programs. Financial eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis however, only persons with annual incomes below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level are eligible. In applying for the program, proof of Orange County residency and U.S. citizenship or legal residency is required.
