ChapCare provides comprehensive primary healthcare services including medical, dental, and behavioral health services to almost 16,000 patients per year. ChapCare also offers free health insurance enrollment assistance through its Covered California Navigator Grant. Their Certified Enrollment Counselors assist community members to enroll in health insurance plans available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Assemblymember Chris Holden said:

ChapCare plays an integral part in making healthcare services accessible to low-income community members. ChapCare is now a national model that has successfully demonstrated how a public-private municipal partnership can help transform the healthcare landscape of local communities.

“For over 23 years, ChapCare has strategically responded to meet the changing needs of the communities we serve,” said Margaret B. Martinez, MPH, ChapCare’s Chief Executive Officer. “Most recently, ChapCare quickly transformed its service delivery model during the COVID pandemic to safely provide healthcare services via telehealth, and initiated COVID testing and vaccine services in the communities we serve. We would like to thank Assemblymember Holden for this great honor, which not only recognizes our organization, but also our dedicated employees who allow us to serve the community each day.”
