It is open enrollment time for Covered California! Anthem Blue Cross Pathways and Cigna Local Plus will no longer be offered in our counties through Covered California for the 2018 enrollment.
Covered California offers several different plans based on the county you live in. East Bay Pediatrics is located in both Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, so you do have options to sign up with a plan we take. You should also be aware that we do not take any of the Medi-Cal plans.
If you are signing up with a health plan through Covered California and you have questions about what plans we take, please call our business office at (925) 438-1100 option 8. We are available Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 12:30pm and 2:00pm to 4:30pm and would be happy to help you through this process.
Flu season generally starts in November - make sure you get vaccinated before the flu gets here. See our flu page for more information and times to drop in for the vaccine.
As many of you know, Dr. Marcia Charles-Mo lives in Sonoma. She was evacuated on Sunday night; she and her family and her dogs are safe. We found out today that her property is intact. We are so thankful that this tragedy spared our dear Dr. Marcia. We continue to hope that these fires are controlled and no further damage is done.
