||There are two basic programs that provide assistance with paying for health care for an eligible individual or family. Each program has its own rules to determine who is eligible and the amount, if any, of monthly co-payment. Not all doctors accept these programs for payment. Check with your doctor.
Some of the Services and Programs we provide are:
Medi-Cal is California's health care entitlement program for low-income individuals and families who receive public assistance or lack health care coverage and who qualify for the program.
CMSP (County Medical Services Program)
CMSP pays for health care for eligible, low-income adults 21 years through 64 years of age who meet all CMSP criteria and who do not qualify for Medi-Cal.
Each program has rules about who qualifies for assistance. Medi-Cal has many mini-programs with special rules that cover a wide range of income, property limits and medical needs. For each program, facts about the individual or household, including, but not limited to, income, bank accounts, stocks, vehicles, age and residency, will be verified.
How To Apply
Applications for people living in Butte County can be made at either of the two Community Employment Centers listed on the side bar. Applications can also be mailed into the office. Interviews are done in the office. However, in some cases the interview can be done over the phone or in another location.
If an interpreter is needed please ask at the time an appointment is made so one can be made available for the interview. There is no cost to you for the services of an interpreter.
