Mission: Santa Clara Family Health Plan (SCFHP) is a local, public, not-for-profit health plan dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the residents of Santa Clara County. Our mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive health care coverage for those who do not have access to, or are not able to purchase, good health care at an affordable price.
