Health Plan of San Joaquin | Focus Your Health | Fall 2018

Focus Your Health Fall 2018 Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ) wants our members to know we speak their language. Or, we can offer a helpful per- son who does. For doctor visits, a trained health interpreter can be requested, when needed. You do not have to ask family or friends to tell you what your doctor is saying. Call us at 1-888-936-PLAN (7526) or TTY/TDD 711 to get help. Doctors and HPSJ members can ask for an interpreter at no cost. You can get interpreter service in many languages, including American Sign Language. Be sure to ask for an interpreter when you make a doctor visit. If you would like to use a face-to-face interpreter, please contact us: ● ● Five to seven business days in advance for any language need ● ● Ten business days in advance for sign language If you find that you need an interpreter and your appoint- ment is in three days or fewer, please call us and we will work with you to get you the help you need. We are here to help make sure you can under- stand your doctor in your language, and understand that you cannot always call in the preferred time frame we have listed for you.
