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.

We are now accepting applications to join our section!

Are you interested in health equity, working with the Berkeley community, learning more about health insurance or the ACA, or helping people get healthcare?

Please note, it is mandatory for all potential volunteers to attend an All-Clinic Orientation (ACO). This can be done before or after submitting your application, but we recommend attending one as soon as possible. ACOs take place in the clinic on the third Monday of every month at 7:30PM
