Dear Patient - We Need Your Help!

You may receive a survey in the mail asking you to rate your experience with your healthcare provider to help us improve your care and better serve you in the future, please respond to the survey. Responses from all patients surveyed will be used to find ways to improve services for all our patients. Your provider will not see your answers. Your answers are private and confidential. CCS Processing is doing this survey for Partnership HealthPlan of California, to ensure your responses to the survey will remain confidential.

If you have any questions, please contact CCS Processing at (855) 643-0133. Your response and time are greatly appreciated.

Do you want your kiddos to eat their veggies?

When talking to your little ones about food sometimes the best option is to stay away from health talk.

Research shows that kids eat more veggies if they have funny names. Below are some ideas of names you can use to make healthy foods much more fun to eat. They can even help your kiddos learn how specific foods are healthy for them.

  • X-Ray Vision Carrots
  • Tomato Bursts
  • Big Bad Bandit Beans
  • Tasty Tiny Tree Tops (broccoli)
  • Bone-Protecting Milk

What's Good to Know:

  • Need an appointment right away? SCHC’s Urgent Care is here to fill the gap in primary care and the ER. It is open Monday through Thursday from 8am-8pm, Friday from 8am-5pm, and Saturday from 9am-1pm. Call (530) 246-5710 for details.
  • Do you know the best way to talk to your healthcare team? Shasta Health Connect is your online health resource that gives you direct access to your healthcare team that’s quick and easy!
  • Will you have to pay a penalty? Having health insurance is still required by law for most Americans. The tax penalty will end in 2019. For 2018, you must show that you had health insurance when you file your taxes, unless you qualify for an exemption. If you didn’t have health insurance and don’t qualify for an exemption, you will have to pay a penalty when you file your 2018 taxes. If you have questions or need health insurance, call our Outreach & Enrollment team at (530) 229-5117.
