Free Enrollment Assistance for Health Insurance and Food Benefits
The CEC now offers drop in hours on the first and third Saturday of the month from 12pm to 1pm.
Our certified enrollment counselors can help you enroll in Medi-Cal health insurance or receive subsidized health insurance through Covered California. We also offer assistance applying for CalFresh, the state food benefits program (also known as SNAP or food stamps). Our goal is to help you understand your options and to support you as you navigate the enrollment process.
If interested, please fill out this online form. We will call or email you within a week to answer your questions and/or set up an in-person appointment.
In-person enrollment assistance is available by appointment on Tuesdays 6-9PM and Saturdays 3-6PM. We also offer drop in hours on the first and third Saturday of the month from 12pm to 1pm. If you are unavailable at these times, we will work to accommodate your schedule. You can use the Shop and Compare Tool to see what health plan(s) you may qualify for before requesting our service.
1) Medi-Cal enrollment is available year-round, which means you can still apply outside of Open Enrollment through Covered CA or your local county social services office.
2) If you have a Qualifying Life Event you may still enroll in health insurance outside of Open Enrollment through Covered CA, as long as you enroll within 60 days of the event.
