Our goal is to keep you updated by sharing the latest COVID-19 public health information and available resources. As information is rapidly evolving, we recommend that you check back for frequent updates and stay informed by joining our email list.
While some of our locations have been approved to serve as a COVID-19 vaccination center, we are waiting for initial delivery of the vaccine. Important to note is that supply will be limited and distribution will be prioritized in accordance with CDC, state and county requirements, beginning with critical healthcare workers and individuals considered at higher risk due to age or underlying health conditions. If you are not among these prioritized groups, we ask for your patience and recommend that you periodically check for local and county updates.
For more information about vaccine distribution, consider the following resources:
You can also call the California COVID-19 Hotline at 1 (833) 422-4255, Monday through Friday from 8 am – 8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays, from 8 am – 5 pm.
Prioritized access for healthcare workers (and other priority groups as they become eligible)
Most California counties are currently vaccinating healthcare workers who are at the highest risk of contracting COVID-19 (acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, first responders, correctional hospitals, and behavioral health facilities).
Consider the following county resources for prioritized access:
If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 – fever, cough, sore throat, increased phlegm – call your primary care physician (PCP) or urgent care center first for instructions.
Do not immediately come to your PCP’s office if your symptoms are mild. Instead, call the office and begin a self-quarantine. Most patients will be managed at home.
Only visit the ER if you experience severe respiratory conditions and have trouble breathing. It is important that we keep the ER available for emergencies. Otherwise, expect to be given instructions on self-care under home isolation.
Older adults and people with serious underlying conditions such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild as they seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
If you are experiencing some emergency warning signs such as persistent pain or pressure in the chest, trouble breathing, new confusion, or bluish lips or face, seek immediate medical attention or call 911.
Waiving co-pays for screening, testing and vaccinations
As your medical group we will continue to waive cost-sharing for medically necessary screening and testing for COVID-19 for all Medicare, Commercial, Cal Medi-Connect and Medi-Cal members. Regardless where you get yours, vaccinations will be provided at no cost per Federal and State mandates.
Based upon the Federal and State Emergency Declarations, the cost of services due from members shall be zero for all medically necessary screening and testing for COVID-19, including, but not limited to, co-pays, deductibles, coinsurance, for hospital/emergency department visits, urgent care visits, and provider office visits, where the purpose of the visit is to be screened, tested and/or vaccinated for COVID-19.
For Medicare Advantage and Medicare beneficiaries under Part A, B, and/or C, during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Care for covered services may be furnished at non-contracted facilities (e.g. hospitals), that are contracted with Medicare; requirements that referrals be requested by the primary care physician (PCP), shall be waived; and the member will have the same cost-sharing for services or benefits furnished at a plan non-contracted facility (e.g. hospital).
