Access to health care will continue to be an issue and a challenge. Here are two links to websites to help you with your search for information about health care.
Doorway to Health is a Foundation of the Santa Barbara Regional Health Authority. Their vision is to "maximize the health status of all residents of Santa Barbara County." They are working to "develop programs to provide affordable comprehensive health care for the underserved, uninsured and underinsured" in our county.
See more information at their website for the Healthy Kids Program.
The U. S. Department of Health & Human Services also has a great website.
Go there for a webchat on The Affordable Care Act & Behavioral Health. This is a discussion on how provisions in this act will "help ensure that those with behavioral health disorders receive the coverage they need. The webchat is available as of September 15.
You can also find links for information on autism, flu, food safety and medical fraud.
