The mission of Dixon Family Services is to improve the quality of life for all families and individuals in our diverse community. Our intervention and support services are strengthened by cooperation with the schools, churches, businesses and the community. With the support of the United Way Health Endowment Fund and the Solano Community Foundation, Dixon Family Services wants to provide resources to community members for obtaining successful access to health care coverage. The objective in developing this resource manual is to provide both caregivers and consumers a comprehensive guide in accessing affordable health care services within the Solano County and Yolo County area. With the development and integration of this resource manual into the case management services provided by Dixon Family Services, we are committed to identifying and securing health care services appropriate to each individual’s needs.
Dixon Family Services serves a diverse population of different age groups ranging from children to seniors. Because of the economic downturn and the loss of employment, many families seek affordable and accessible medical services for both children and adults. In the Dixon area the low income population is primarily of Hispanic descent, and many are only Spanish-Speaking. In conjunction, Dixon Family Services also works with clients of Farm Work backgrounds and often their education levels are minimal. Dixon Family Services provides bilingual services in various programs such as case management, substance abuse, mental health and many others services in order to provide accessible and appropriate support to the community. In the development of this resource manual, many of the application forms and informational brochures have been included in both English and Spanish versions in order to reduce language constraints, and to promote an increased awareness of local health resources.
The Health Access Resource Manual compiled by Dixon Family Services lists many of the County and State programs that provide public assistance in obtaining medical coverage for a variety of individuals, including children, adults, and seniors. In addition, many low-cost health clinics located in different cities in Solano and Yolo Counties have been included in providing comprehensive medical services/health screenings to low-income individuals and families. In today’s economy prescription medications have become increasingly costly, so we have included a section of pharmacy discounts available in our area.
The following pages will include an abbreviated outline of the different health services provided within Solano/Yolo Counties, distinguished by respective age groups and subcategories. Most resources also have websites, so for more in-depth information we encourage those interested to visit specific websites for more details. Our vision in the development of the resource manual was to provide individuals with different options in obtaining health services most appropriate to their needs. It is the continued hope of Dixon Family Services to advocate for greater health access to all individuals, and to collaborate within the community to provide a more comprehensive outreach effort.
With the Affordable Health Care for America Act signed into law on March 23, 2010, the primary objective of creating more accessible health care coverage for individuals has become a necessity with the economic downturn. Affordable health care for uninsured individuals, enhanced quality of health services, and increasing the accessibility of medical coverage are all goals that the Affordable Health Care for America Act aims to achieve. With the support of the United Way Health Endowment Fund, Dixon Family Services is committed in implementing greater access to low-cost health coverage services as a component of case management and information and referral services provided to the city of Dixon and other communities. Through research, education, and outreach, Dixon Family Services works towards supporting community members in becoming well-informed consumers with regards to their health and well-being.
It is also part of our plan to share our results with the other social services organizations in Solano and Yolo Counties so that our work can make a positive impact on a greater number of people. For this purpose, Dixon Family Services authorizes the use and copying of these resources and contact information to those who may find it helpful to them. You can also download this document from our website at www.dixonfamilyservices.org
Again we want to acknowledge and thank the United Way of the Bay Area and the Solano Community Foundation for helping Dixon Family Services in the development of this resource guide.

Seniors (65+ years of age)
Apply For Medicare Benefits
Medicare is our country’s health insurance program for people age 65 or older. Certain people younger than age 65 can qualify for Medicare, too, including those who have disabilities and those who have permanent kidney failure or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease). The program helps with the cost of health care, but it does not cover all medical expenses or the cost of most long-term care. Medicare is financed by a portion of the payroll taxes paid by workers and their employers. It also is financed in part by monthly premiums deducted from Social Security checks.
Medicare has four parts:
- Hospital Insurance – helps pay for inpatient care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (following a hospital stay), some home health care and hospice care.
- Medical Insurance – helps pay for doctors’ services and many other medical services and supplies that are not covered by hospital insurance.
- Medicare Advantage – plans are available in many areas. People with Medicare Parts A and B can choose to receive all of their health care services through one of these provider organizations under Part C.
- Prescription Drug Coverage – helps pay for medications doctors prescribe for treatment.
