The Community Care Settings Program (CCSP) assists Health Plan of San Mateo County members to transition out of nursing facilities and back to living independently in the community. CCSP also provides services to individuals living in the community, or those who are in acute care settings, that are at imminent risk of institutionalization. CCSP staff work to ensure that individuals are connected to all available community resources, stable housing, and appropriate healthcare services to support their ability to live at home safely.
CCSP is funded by the Health Plan of San Mateo. Please call 415.750.4111 for questions regarding eligibility criteria or to make a referral.
