LAHealth4All Coalition Makes My Health LA Program Recommendations to DHSPosted by Anulkah Thomas, Health Coverage Policy Analyst on May 26th, 2015
To date more than 100,000 Los Angeles county residents have enrolled in My Health LA (MHLA), a county program that provides health care to the remaining uninsured not eligible for other health coverage like Medi-Cal or Covered California. Based on their April 8, 2015 report to the County Board of Supervisors’ health deputies, the Department of Health Services (DHS) expects enrollment to reach between 130,000 and 136,000 by the end of this fiscal year (June 30, 2015).
The full letter is available here. A group of LAHealth4All advocates met with DHS staff who indicated that they are exploring ways to improve the program.
For insight on how the program is working for some participants, read or listen to this recent KPCC news story. For more information on MHLA, please see the My Health LA website or contact Community Health Councils’ Policy Analyst, Anulkah Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
