Health Insurance SOS
Eastern Plumas Health Care currently offers one on one help signing up for, or renewing Covered CA insurance. The deadline this year is January 30, so it is urgent to get help signing up if you need it now. Call 530.832.6568.
We also have year round help navigating the process of signing up for MediCal. April Shepherd in our Financial Services Office is here full time to help. You can make an appointment by contacting 530.832.6568; firstname.lastname@example.org. She also takes walk-ins. She will get the information and documentation she needs from you and will work through the county to get you signed up. She can also help with Medicare Supplemental coverage and Medicare Part D (prescription).
We’re Serious About Your Health (And Ours)
Beginning January 1, 2018 all of Eastern Plumas Health Care’s campuses will be smoke free. This includes e-cigarettes—vaping. This covers the buildings, grounds, and parking lots of all EPHC campuses. The hospital has been working with Plumas County Public Health on policy implementation. Public Health recently assisted Plumas District Hospital with its no smoking implementation, as well. EPHC is committed to helping its staff and community members who would like to quit smoking. They have smoking cessation classes available (call 832.6556). Also, your doctor can prescribe patches and medications to help you.
