Benefits Enrollment Center

Benefits Enrollment Center

FHCSD’s Benefits Enrollment Center helps people eligible for Medicare to enroll in appropriate benefits.

Trained staff will work one-on-one to determine your eligibility and benefits, free of charge.

A benefits screening can determine what entitlement benefits you may be eligible for. It takes less ten minutes to complete and is unique to you. It is completely free of charge and there are no obligations. Additionally, you do not need to be a patient of Family Health Centers of San Diego and you do not need to switch your health care provider.
