Potential Funding Sources for Uninsured Patients

There are several program options for patients in Santa Barbara County who are uninsured. A patient may be eligible for Medi-Cal or the Indigent Care Program (ICP) if they meet financial requirements involving income, assets and property limitations.

If the uninsured patient is not eligible for Medi-Cal or ICP, but is unable to make payments, physicians' services may be eligible for reimbursement through Tobacco Settlement (TS) or Maddy Emergency Medical Services funds, the latter of which are administered by the Santa Barbara County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) at 805-681-4920 or
