Pasadena Public Health Department

  • CHILDREN'S HEALTH INSURANCE OUTREACH PROGRAM

    The Pasadena Public Health Department seeks to reduce the number of uninsured children and families, and improve the overall health of Pasadena residents by providing access to care.  Our Children's Health Insurance Outreach Program helps enroll single adults, families, pregnant women, and children in health insurance programs.  We have developed a strong network with community-based organizations, healthcare providers, and schools to provide a broad availability of resources.  Our outreach workers will help families find affordable insurance options, and help connect families to medical and dental healthcare providers.  Health insurance programs include:
