The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) administers the Refugee Medical Assistance program for California. Using county-level refugee health coordinators and programs, the DHCS Local Assistance Branch Refugee Health Section ensures that every refugee, on initial entry into California, is given a complete health assessment and screening and, if needed, follow-up treatment and care. Services available through the Refugee Medical Assistance program are excluded from Health Net's coverage responsibilities under the health plan.
