The Certified Enrollment Counselors (CECs) at the Berkeley Free Clinic help clients navigate the process of enrolling in health insurance and food benefits. 

Specifically, CECs help clients enroll in Medi-Cal, subsidized Covered California Health plans, and CalFresh (food stamps). They also engage in clinic in-reach and community outreach to inform people about important provisions under the ACA, such as Medi-Cal expansion and enrollment periods.

Our Applications are now closed - we will open again in June 2019!

Are you interested in health equity, working with the Berkeley community, learning more about health insurance or the ACA, or helping people get healthcare? If so, please fill out this form by Sunday, July 8th, 2018. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact us at
