The Covering Kids and Families of Northeast Indiana Coalition (CKF-NEIN) is comprised of over 45 partners and currently services 8 counties in Northeast Indiana including: Allen, Dekalb, Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, and Whitley Counties. We have established office locations and partnerships in all 8 counties.
In 2014, the CKF-NEIN Coalition partners assisted 5,864 families and individuals with enrolling in the Medicaid and CHIP Programs, 1,228 individuals with enrolling in the Healthy Indiana Plan, and 1,210 families and individuals with enrolling in the Health Insurance Marketplace. The Coalition partners also assisted 858 pregnant women with signing up for Presumptive Eligibility, allowing them to receive early prenatal care while their Medicaid applications were pending.
As the lead agency of CKF-NEIN, Community Action of Northeast Indiana (CANI) currently partners with and has established referral processes with 40% of the public school districts in our eight-county service area. In 2015, CANI seeks to build our school-based outreach program by increasing partnerships and referral processes to be with 50% of the public school districts in our communities.
