Our Stories

Contra Costa County COVID Resources 

Contra Costa County has seen the benefit of quick, definitive action. Because of the shelter in place orders and the community’s observance of these health orders, we have largely avoided the devastation that has played itself out in other parts of the nation and world. If you would like more information about COVID-19 and resources available in Contra Costa County, please CLICK HERE.

Public Charge 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has published a rule change to public charge that was scheduled to become effective October 15, 2019. Several lawsuits against the proposal have been filed and blocked the rule from taking effect, through nation-wide injunctions. On January 27, 2020, the Supreme Court lifted the last injunction, resulting in the administration’s ability to move forward with implementation.  The  rule change will make it more difficult for low income families to obtain a green card or a temporary visa, if adjusting inside the U.S..

#Health4All Young Adult Expansion

Starting January 1, 2020, young adults up to 26 years old may be eligible for full scope Medi-Cal, regardless of their immigration status. The young adult expansion is a significant step forward to bridging the uninsured gap. The Consortium will continue advocating through the Health4All Coalition to expand Medi-Cal for all elders.  For free help enrolling, call a community health center and schedule an enrollment appointment.

340B Drug Pricing Program

The 340B Drug Pricing Program lowers drug costs for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and others who provide healthcare services to all- regardless of their ability to pay . The program has broad bipartisan support because 340B savings are leveraged to reduce drug prices for patients, improved pharmacy access, extended health center hours, and support FQHCs mission to expand healthcare access for all. If health centers lose 340B savings, the revenue loss may be as high as $150 million. CLICK HERE to learn more.
