Important Healthcare Advisory

As you are aware residents of California that are currently covered by Medi-Cal will be asked to select a Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan for their medical needs. Northern Valley Indian Health has contracted with Anthem Blue Cross and California Health and Wellness. Both of these plans are Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans. Enrollment for these plans commenced on October 1st 2013, and coverage began November 1st, 2013.

We would like to take this opportunity to inform you as one of our established patients, that if you are eligible for a Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan you will need to select one of the plans and select our facility in order to continue healthcare with Northern Valley Indian Health. It is important to understand that if you do not select one of the Medi-Cal Managed Plans and a provider the State will make a selection for you and your care with Northern Valley Indian Health may be interrupted.

We are here to guide you through the process of applying for one of our enrollment coordinators to determine your eligibility status with one of the managed Medi-Cal Plans.
