Medi-Cal (Medicaid) is California’s health insurance program designed for children and adults with limited income.

Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) accepts a range of payment and insurance plans, including Medi-Cal. In addition, all FHCSD clinics operate on a sliding fee scale. This means the cost of services is based upon income and family size. No patient will be turned away based on their inability to pay. Our staff will help patients enroll in free or low-cost plans that can help cover the cost of treatment and services.

For enrollment assistance, call (619) 515-2363, or schedule a telehealth appointment.
