Health Care Reform

Dear: United Health Centers Patient

On behalf of United Health Centers, I would like to offer our assistance with a very important change as a direct result of legislation that President Barack Obama signed in March 2010; the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), millions of Californians gained access to affordable health coverage beginning in January 2014 through a new health insurance marketplace called Covered California. In addition, more than 1 million Californians will be newly eligible for Medi-Cal under a program expansion for the uninsured or underinsured.

As a patient of United Health Centers you may be eligible to be covered under the newly expanded Medi-Cal program. Patients of community health centers who are currently uninsured or who may qualify because of low-income may see an enormous benefit from the passage of this landmark legislation to help reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket costs for health care.

We would like to offer you our help in obtaining additional information, understanding details of these programs, and assisting with enrollment into programs that you might qualify for, such as Medi-Cal.

For assistance with these programs please contact our Eligibility & Enrollment Department at 559-646-6618 extension 6733 or email elig&enrollment@unitedhealthcenters.org. Thank you for being part of the United Health Centers family and we look forward to “wellness for a lifetime” providing quality healthcare for the entire family.

Sincerely,

Colleen                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Colleen Curtis
