COVID-19 Resources for Consumers


CHCF strives to help Californians get the health care they need. In this new era of COVID-19, information is flowing at a rapid rate, and people are looking for up-to-date information. We’ve compiled a set of online resources to help health care consumers understand state and federal recommendations and policies, as well as specific resources on benefits and maintaining mental health.
