Monday – Friday
8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Our team of Community Health Advocates conducts outreach activities to inform uninsured adults and families with children about opportunities to get affordable health coverage. We reach more than 70,000 residents per year through our services.
We are a public-private partnership that includes community-based organizations, school districts, the San Mateo County Health System, and other safety net clinics. We work closely with the Human Services Agency to connect those clients who qualify for Medi-Cal in following up on eligibility or coverage renewal issues, and with the Health Plan of San Mateo for participants whose coverage is managed by HPSM.
The Health Coverage Unit (HCU) is led by the Director of Strategic Operations at the San Mateo Health System. The HCU manages outreach contracts with six community based organizations. An administrative team of one manager and three supervisors oversee a staff of Community Health Advocates (CHA).
