MISP is available to qualifying residents of San Luis Obispo County who have a current illness or injury and no other way to pay for necessary medical care. If you've experienced a recent medical event, such as a trip to the ER or a stay in the hospital, MISP may be able to help you pay for some of those costs.
MISP provides short-term assistance to help MISP clients pay for a specific medical need. Once approved, clients are granted eligibility for either three months or for six months, depending on the medical need. Clients may reapply if they continue to have a medical need at the end of their eligibility period.
Share of Cost
Share of cost is the monthly amount clients have to pay their providers, or agree to pay, towards their health care costs before MISP will pay the remainder. Share of cost works something like an insurance plan's deductible.
Primary Care at CHC
MISP clients receive primary care through one of the Community Health Centers (CHC) clinics located throughout SLO County. For more information, call CHC at 805-929-3211 or visit www.communityhealthcenters.org.
Clients do not have to pay a share of cost towards covered medical services received at CHC.
