Public Insurance

Depending on your financial and/or living circumstances, you may be available for public insurance (Medi-Cal). Please enroll in Medi-Cal through another agency before making your appointment at Dientes.


To be eligible for Medi-Cal, you must be a resident of California and your resources must be under Medi-Cal limits. If you are a medical patient at any of the following clinics, you may apply for Medi-Cal insurance there:

  • Planned Parenthood
  • Salud Para La Gente
  • Watsonville Community Hospital
  • County Health Department


Outreach and enrollment is being coordinated through the Santa Cruz County Health Care Outreach Coalition. For more information about Medi-Cal, please call the Coalition 831-454-2515 or 831-763-8568.
