The Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics is dedicated to providing a variety of important programs at all our facilities for everyone that walks through our doors. The majority of all SBNC patients are below the federal poverty level and qualify for most of these programs! If you have questions about any of the programs listed or eligibility please contact our clinics today.
SBNC follows all HIPAA regulations including the HIPAA Privacy Rule, which establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically. The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information, and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. The Rule also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections. Learn about the Rules’ protection of individually identifiable health information, the rights granted to individuals, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), its enforcement activities, and how to file a complaint with OCR.

Who is Eligible?
Children birth through age 19 who are in Medi-Cal, fall below the 200% poverty level, or are in Head Start or State Preschool Program. Legal Residents are enrolled via the internet through the CHDP Gateway Program that classifies the child with presumptive eligibility immediately so they can receive follow-up CHDP services for free through Medi-Cal. Non-legal residents are still eligible for CHDP, but not Gateway, therefore any follow-up work will be paid for through EAPC instead of Medi-Cal/Gateway.

Routine well childcare visits using CHDP periodicity schedule; extra well childcare visits can be justified if needed and partial visits to complete immunizations and lab tests are allowed. Any referrals noted on CHDP form will be followed-up by CHDP staff.
