Legislation signed by CA Gov. Gavin Newsom extends telehealth payment and other policy flexibilities established during the COVID-19 pandemic through December 2022. That’s good news for CA health centers and supports our work at SFCHC to enhance and expand access to high-quality health care, with an emphasis on the most vulnerable and chronically underserved. This LA Times article provides an in-depth look at how SFCHC and other health care providers are finding new ways to provide equitable opportunities for remote care – and how patients are responding.

Update:  SFCHC is accepting telemedicine visits. Call us Mon - Fri 8 AM - 5 PM (818) 963-5690 to book your appointment day and time.
