Health Plan of San Joaquin
Health Plan of San Joaquin has been serving members enrolled in publicly-funded programs in the heart of the Central Valley since 1996. As a publicly sponsored, not-for-profit, Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), we have a contract with the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to manage health care for Medi-Cal members.
We continuously work to improve the health of our community by providing access to high quality cost-effective health care to almost 350,000 members – serving families in San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties.

From Cradle to Career –
How we’re getting our whole community to sustained health
Local Health Landscape View, from Amy Shin, CEO
Health Plan of San Joaquin is a strong not-for-profit, managed care plan serving the Medi-Cal beneficiaries. In the last six years, our health plan has had extraordinary growth. By 2018, 180,000 had grown to 350,000 members.
We know our community, struggling with economic hardships and work opportunities. Larger percentages of Medi-Cal beneficiaries are in our counties compared to the California average. Our area doesn’t have enough primary care physicians serving our residents.
We’re well below the recommended 60-80 doctors per 100,000 residents. Then add harsh problems of housing and food insecurity, and literacy issues throughout our area. Despite these barriers, we at Health Plan of Health Joaquin expect our members to have true, meaningful access to care. Click here to read more.
