Providence Southern California has built a broad range of community benefit programs serving the elderly, the uninsured, our immigrants, school children and those with mental illnesses.
Service to the poor and vulnerable is a responsibility we all embrace. Our board members serve as eyes and ears in the community and take seriously our call to serve. We carefully steward our resources to ensure we can finance our Mission of serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable. And our employees with their spirit, compassion, dedication and innovation help sustain this responsibility to those in need. To learn more about us, visit the Community Health website.
Our Community Health office in San Pedro offers assistance with the Community Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CHIP provides a team of bilingual (English/Spanish) community health workers who advise consumers on public programs they are eligible for and help them enroll into a suitable health plan, including:
- Covered CA
Our community health workers meet with clients in person to provide individualized assessments of a client’s eligibility, guide them in navigating the complex application process, and follow-up to assist in troubleshooting or advocating for clients who are improperly denied coverage.
