L.A. Care is the Largest Public Health Plan in America
As the nation's largest public health plan, we are dedicated to helping Los Angeles County residents obtain health care for their families from doctors and other health care providers who understand and respect them.
L.A. Care Health Plan is governed by 13 board members, representing medical and health care professionals, as well as Medi-Cal consumers. We are accountable to community stakeholders, not stockholders.
L.A. Care Health Plan, the nation’s largest public health plan, serves more than one million Los Angeles County residents through five free or low-cost health insurance programs: Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, L.A. Care’s Healthy Kids IHSS Health Care and L.A. Care Health Plan Medicare Advantage HMO.
Our members have access to more than 10,000 providers — including doctors, specialists, hospitals and pharmacies — close to their homes, work, and schools.
L.A. Care can help you find out which programs you and your children may qualify for. We can even help you with the application.
