News & Events
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the federal law passed in 2010 to provide affordable health insurance. This historic law will change the way health insurance companies provide coverage as well as the way consumers purchase coverage.
To help those without health insurance get covered, the law also requires each state to set up their own marketplace to offer health insurance or have one provided to them by the federal government. California has chosen to create its own marketplace – Covered California.
Please visit the Covered California website to learn more about your health insurance options and valuable resources such as a cost calculator to help estimate monthly costs for premiums and maximum annual out-of-pocket based on their household size and income. www.coveredca.com
Low Income Health Program
San Joaquin County is offering a Low Income Health Program (LIHP) in compliance with the approved California’s section 1115(a) Medicaid Demonstration, “Bridge to Reform (Demonstration).” Under the Demonstration between the State and the federal government, the County is providing low income residents key coverage program components as a “bridge” to the expanded Medicaid coverage which will be available under federal Health Care Reform, “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” in January 2014.
The LIHP will allow for enrollment of adults 19 – 64 years of age meeting financial and residency eligibility requirements.
For more LIHP information refer to San Joaquin General Hospital website by clicking here.

Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike Clinics
Funded by Health Resources and Services Administration and its Bureau of Primary Care to provide health care to designated medically underserved areas or populations, San Joaquin County and the San Joaquin County Clinics Community Board (CCCB) have submitted a Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike Application (FQHC-LAL) for designation of FQHC-LAL Clinics. If approved, this will allow the county to receive enhanced reimbursement to ensure our Primary Care Clinics remain open and accessible to the community.
To find out more about FQHC-LAL, please visit http://bphc.hrsa.gov/policiesregulations/policies/fqhclookalikes.html.
Board Members Needed for Federal Qualified Health Center Look-Alike Status for SJGH Clinics
San Joaquin General Hospital needs your help in identifying patients from the Family Medicine Clinic, Primary Care Clinic, Internal Medicine Clinic, Pediatric Clinic and Healthy Beginnings Clinic (French Camp or California Street) who must comprise the majority of an 11-person board to oversee operations of the proposed FQHC look-alike. In addition, all members of this board should reflect the demographics of the patients we serve; therefore, we need to get additional information (see application addendum) from each potential member regarding their ethnicity.
For more information, please contact Margaret Szczepaniak, Assistant Director Health Care Services, at (209) 468-5610 or email@example.com.
