Have you received an email or text message asking about your visit to SCHC?
No? You just might! SCHC is now working with a company called Birdeye to help collect and share your feedback about SCHC. Don’t be surprised if you get contacted!
What should you expect if you are contacted? 
You will be asked a simple question whether or not you enjoyed your recent visit to SCHC. You will also have a chance to leave positive feedback or suggestions.
Why are we asking for your feedback?
We want to know what you have to say. It’s important to us that our patients and visitors are satisfied with the service and care they receive. Plus, when we get your feedback we get the chance to share it with our staff so we can learn from your experience - good or bad!

What's Good to Know:

  • Need an appointment right away? SCHC’s Urgent Care is here to fill the gap in primary care and the ER. It is open Monday through Thursday from 8am-8pm, Friday from 8am-5pm, and Saturday from 9am-1pm. Call (530) 246-5710 for details.
  • Do you know the best way to talk to your healthcare team? Shasta Health Connect is your online health resource that gives you direct access to your healthcare team that’s quick and easy!
  • Will you have to pay a penalty? Having health insurance is still required by law for most Americans. You must show that you had health insurance when you file taxes each year, unless you qualified for an exemption. If you didn’t have health insurance and don’t qualify for an exemption, you will have to pay a penalty at tax time. If you need health insurance, call our Outreach & Enrollment team at (530) 229-5117 for help signing up.
