Medical Safety Net Program (MSN)

OC health care agency logo

The Medical Safety Net (MSN) Program was established in January 2014 by the County of Orange Health Care Agency to meet Orange County’s obligations under California Welfare and Institutions Code Section 17000.

The MSN Program provides urgent/emergent care to low-income adults through a public-private partnership between the Orange County Health Care Agency and community health care providers, hospitals, and community clinics.

The MSN Program provides only necessary medical services to protect the patient from the loss of life or limb, prevent significant disability and/or the serious deterioration of health. The MSN program does not cover preventive medical services. Please review the MSN Member Handbook for more information on eligibility qualifications, covered services, and service locations. You can also contact the MSN Program at 714-834-6248.

Please note that all potential MSN enrollees are eligible to purchase comprehensive, commercial health coverage from Covered California – California’s online health insurance marketplace – during the open enrollment period. For more information, please visit their website or call them directly at 800-300-1506
