California's MRMIP (Major Risk Medical Insurance Program) has apparently survived the proposed budget cut last year.
In 2017, the proposed 2018 budget would have eliminated the MRMIP and the MRMIF (Fund) and transferred the fund balance to the newly established Health Care Services Plans Fines and Penalties Fund. See my blog post from 2017
MRMIP is qualifying health coverage for mandate/penalty issues. It is available year round for enrollment (assuming no waiting list) to California residents who are denied enrollment in a qualifying health insurance plan (Obamacare).
