WHO WE ARE: Partnership HealthPlan of California (PHC) is a nonprofit, community-based, public health care organization that contracts with the State to administer Medi-Cal benefits through local care providers to ensure access to comprehensive cost-effective health care. PHC provides quality health care to over 565,000 people in 14 Northern California counties:

Del Norte * Humboldt * Lake * Lassen * Marin * Mendocino * Modoc
Napa * Shasta * Siskiyou * Solano * Sonoma * Trinity * Yolo

In addition to all Medi-Cal benefits, PHC provides enhanced services including eyeglasses and mental health care. We have a dedicated Member Services team and a 24-hour Advice Nurse phone line, as well as Care Coordination services for complex cases.

PHC is governed by a Board of Commissioners, comprised of locally elected officials, provider representatives, and patient advocates who meet on a monthly basis to set policy and strategic priorities for the health plan. More than 700 PHC employees work at regional offices in four cities – Fairfield, Santa Rosa, Redding, and Eureka.

WHO WE SERVE: PHC provides health care to some of California's most vulnerable populations, which include: low-income residents in rural counties; children; those with disabilities; and the elderly.

OUR HISTORY: PHC was established to address the use of Solano County emergency rooms as the primary source of care for local Medi-Cal recipients. PHC began serving Solano County as a County Organized Health System (aka a public plan) in 1994. While PHC has consistently grown over time, a series of significant expansions occurred between 2009 and 2013. During this time, the organization's membership quadrupled.
