Health Insurance

Insurance keeps you healthy and financially covered when you need it most.

Health coverage can be complicated. That’s why we offer free assistance to help you apply and get health coverage. We can let you know which programs you may qualify for, explain how they work, what it may cost, and then help you apply.

Schedule a health coverage screening appointment even if you think you might not qualify or if you have private, non-employer sponsored insurance. Legal immigration status is not required to access free or low-cost health insurance in San Mateo County. If you are under age 26 and currently not employed, but covered by a parent’s private insurance plan, you might qualify for subsidized coverage through Medi-Cal.
