Hello and Welcome to SNAHC.

Insurance Plans
We accept the following plans: Medicare, Medi-Cal, Anthem Blue Cross River City Medi-Cal, Molina Medi-Cal, Health Net River City Medi-Cal, and most private insurance plans. Please note, we only bill private insurance for our Native patients; these are typically considered out of network provider visits as we do not contract with private insurance companies. We are also a Family PACT and Every Woman Counts provider.

Office Visits
So that we may provide you with the best possible service, please be aware of and accept the following guidelines:

  • When calling for routine appointments, please call several weeks in advance to allow for scheduling.
  • When making appointments for a sick family member, call early in the day and have available pertinent information (such as the family member’s temperature). If your family member has a chronic condition or complicated medical history (such as physical, emotional or behavioral problems), please inform the appointment secretary so that we can schedule the appropriate amount of time. SNAHC makes every attempt to schedule same day appointments, however availability may be limited.
  • If you feel your family member is contagious (chicken pox, measles, etc.), please notify us at the time of making the appointment. We might make arrangements for you to enter the clinic through a door other than the front entrance.
  • Please have a list of all of your prescriptions available to discuss with your provider and write down your questions prior to coming to the appointment. Make sure your questions are answered and that you understand the answers.
  • If cancellation of an appointment is necessary, please call SNAHC a minimum of 24 hours as far in advance as possible.

We make every attempt to see scheduled patients on time.  Please understand that situations involving emergencies do arise that may be beyond our control and may be disruptive to the schedule.

Immunizations
SNAHC has made every effort to provide and administer to you and your family a complete and up-to-date set of Immunizations for both Childhood and Adult Immunizations.  Please bring your family member’s immunization records on your first visit.  

After Hours Emergency or Illness
If you or a family member is experiencing a medical or psychiatric emergency, call 911. If your family member becomes ill or is injured after clinic hours, call 916-341-0575. You will then be put in touch with our answering service, which will then contact the SNAHC’s Nursing Triage Service. They will call you to discuss your options.
