Open Letter from Our CEO

An Important Message for Anyone Who Has Lost Their Health Insurance.

In addition to the thousands of people losing their jobs due to COVID-19, many are also losing their health insurance.

There is no-cost health coverage you may be eligible for: Medi-Cal. CenCal Health administers the Medi-Cal program in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

Like Unemployment, Social Security and Disability Insurance, Medi-Cal is one of America’s vital safety-net programs that is here for you.

Medi-Cal is a public program for adults and children who meet eligibility requirements. The program provides comprehensive coverage for medical, dental and vision care and services, including check-ups, immunizations, mental health, prescription drugs, testing and treatment for COVID-19 (the coronavirus), hospitalization and much more.

Currently, 1 in 4 residents of Santa Barbara County and 1 in 5 residents in San Luis Obispo County receive their health and vision benefits through CenCal Health, the health plan that provides medical and vision coverage for Medi-Cal beneficiaries in these counties.

CenCal Health contracts with over 1,500 local physicians, 104 pharmacies, and all hospitals in both counties. It is likely that you would be able to keep your current physician under CenCal Health. Read complete letter here | Lea la carta completa aquí
