The Benefits and Referral Center (BRC) was formed in January 2014 to provide support to a variety of indigent care programs for the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department and assist Santa Barbara residents who are uninsured and not eligible for other healthcare coverage.

Through referral the BRC facilitates access to medically-appropriate and necessary services that are not available in Santa Barbara County Health Care Centers.

BRC staff also process claims submitted by healthcare providers for services provided outside of the Health Care Centers. This includes the Indigent Care Program (ICP), the Tobacco Settlement Program (TS) and other funds as approved by the leadership of the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department.

For information on how to make referrals and/or submit claims, please see: BRC Provider Referral and Claims Information.
