What Does Medi-Cal Cost?
Depending on income, some members may have no monthly costs or co-payments. Other members may have a monthly share-of-cost.
How Do I Make My Choice?
If your Medi-Cal application is approved by the County, you’ll receive an enrollment packet from Health Care Options. This packet includes a Medi-Cal Choice form for choosing your doctor and your health plan.
The form gives you the option to choose L.A. Care as the primary heath plan. The second step is to sign up with L.A. Care directly, or with one of the members of our Plan Partner family. Many people choose based upon a pre-existing relationship with a health plan or provider.
