Health Insurance

At Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California there are no barriers to care.  Doctors determine the course of care, and all care is provided regardless of the family’s ability to pay. When families do have insurance, the hospital will accept payment from insurance providers.  However, insurance coverage is not a criteria for care.

Any child under 18 with a medical condition that is within the scope of services provided is eligible for care. For questions please call (916) 453-2191.
