October 2012

This free, easy-to-use guide provides basic information on health insurance, nutrition, and other public programs in California.

Now in its 10th edition, The Guide to Health Programs (Guía de Programas de Salud) for families and community organizations describes various public and private programs that increase access to health care services for low-income populations. While the guide is useful to those in need of insurance, it is also a resource for health care workers and community-based organizations in their outreach efforts.

Eligibility for most programs is based partially on income. Because eligibility guidelines may change, those interested in a specific program should contact that program's administrative offices. Ask to speak to an eligibility worker for the latest requirements and a complete description of the application process.
