Join Our Network

join3 Join us in our effort to provide quality healthcare to those in need. CenCal Health has a provider inclusive policy and we work with interested and eligible providers in the area.

We are contracted with 94% of the providers who reside in Santa Barbara County and over 75% of the providers who reside in San Luis Obispo County. This represents over 4000 physicians.

We believe in making processes as easy as possible so that you can focus on providing quality healthcare.  Our Provider Services Representatives are available to answer questions and guide prospective providers through the credentialing and contracting onboarding process. 

To be reimbursed for non-emergent services for an eligible member of a health program administered by CenCal Health, providers must have an executed Agreement with CenCal Health. To provide emergent care to any Medi-Cal member, providers need only be enrolled in the State Medi-Cal program.

Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) and Specialists may contract with CenCal Health either individually, in groups, or as outpatient clinic providers.  We also contract with out-of-area providers as needed to assure the availability of specialized services to members of our programs.  To begin the onboarding process, please submit the following documents to or via the Secure File Link
