ACE Program for Adults
Ventura County is offering a program that offers access to medical care for those with no health insurance. The ACE program is not health insurance or an entitlement program. It is a program made possible by a $10 million grant awarded to Ventura County by the California Department of Health Services. The program is designed to provide individuals with comprehensive outpatient and inpatient services, including specialty care. Once enrolled you can access care at any facility operated by the Health Care Agency, including Ventura County Medical Center, Santa Paula Hospital, the VCMC ambulatory care clinics, behavioral health clinics and public health clinics. Additionally, through collaboration with Clinicas Del Camino Real, enrollees have access to Clinicas' nine clinics as well.
You qualify for the program if all of the following apply:
- You are a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident
- You are 19 through 64 years of age
- You live in Ventura County
- You are not enrolled in or eligible for Medi-Cal, AIM, or any type of insurance coverage
- Your income does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Level
- You are not pregnant
Enrollment fee in the ACE program is based on the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and must be paid at the time of enrollment.
