Help with Health Care Access at County Public Health
Finding insurance and accessing health care resources can be a difficult process. The SLO County Health Department's Health Care Access program has expert Navigators available to help. This free program is available over the phone or in person for any SLO County resident who needs help with finding insurance, locating providers, and connecting to low-cost or free services.
Finding Health Insurance:
The Health Care Access team helps people understand the ins and outs of finding the right insurance to fit a family's financial and health care needs. A Navigator will work with clients to gather information and determine whether family members are eligible for Medi-Cal, the Medically Indigent Services Program, or Covered California. Navigators are also available to help complete enrollment paperwork and guide families through the initial enrollment process.
Finding Medical Services:
The Navigator can help clients find providers who take a particular insurance, fill out health care-related paperwork, and problem solve with providers. Navigators are also able to help clients find medicines that are covered in their health plan and assist with finding low-cost or free services.
