COVID-19

Information regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve as experts learn more about the virus. HPSM appreciates our providers' role on the front lines of this public health crisis, and we want to support you however we can as you support our members.



Monkeypox

Monkeypox (MPX) is a rare disease spread through close, personal contact. In May 2022, MPX began to spread across the United States and other countries that do not normally report the virus. Even though the risk of MPX to the public is currently low, it is imperative that providers immediately report suspected cases to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)


Prepare for Power Shutoffs

Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) are tactical decisions made by Pacific Gas & Electric in response to inclement weather and involve turning off electricity to help prevent the spread of wildfire. HPSM members and providers alike depend on electricity.
