BARRAGAN FAMILY HEALTH CARE AND DIABETES CENTER RECEIVES APPROVAL TO BECOME A CHDP PROVIDER
Hollister, Calif., DECEMBER 1, 2021, – The Barragan Family Health Care and Diabetes Center has received full approval as a Child Health & Disability Prevention Program (CHDP) provider. The health center will begin to offer a full spectrum of pediatric and adolescent vaccines and services to match the services that are currently offered at Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital’s other four rural health centers.
“We have excellent providers and staff at the health center” said Amy Breen-Lema, Director of Provider Services and Clinic Operations. “Being approved as a CHDP provider allows yet another opportunity in which people can seek access to care in their own neighborhood.”
The CHDP is a preventive program that delivers periodic health assessments and services to low income children and youth in California. CHDP provides care coordination to assist families with medical appointment scheduling, transportation, and access to diagnostic and treatment services. Health assessments are provided by enrolled private physicians, local health departments, community clinics, managed care plans and some local school districts.
All CHDP health assessment providers are required to maintain current CHDP enrollment in each county or local jurisdiction in which they render services. In addition, they must follow CHDP program laws, regulations, guidelines, policies and procedures, as outlined in their CHDP provider agreement.
“We are pleased to receive the approval to become a CHDP provider through our Barragan Family Health Care and Diabetes Center” stated Steve Hannah, CEO. “Being able to provide additional services to children and young adults in our community is essential in keeping our youth healthy.”
