Connecting People to Available Health Care Services
More than 20 percent of adult San Diegans struggle to get health care. Scripps partners with the City of San Diego and other government and community leaders on the 2-1-1 Healthcare Navigation Program, which is funded in part with community development block grants provided by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The program provides information and referrals, connecting people to available health services. Healthcare Navigation provides need and eligibility assessments, assistance with medical appointments, and help completing Medi-Cal, Healthy Families and prescription assistance applications.
