E.L.

There's no doubt in my mind that L.A. Care has improved my life. I highly recommend L.A. Care to everyone I know who thinks they might qualify. The current threat of repeal of the ACA scares me a lot - if LA Care has changed my life this much, I know it must have been life changing for many other people as well.

I have been an L.A. Care Medi-Cal member for about three years. My life has been deeply impacted by my healthcare coverage. Before I got on L.A. Care, I hadn't seen a doctor in at least eight years. When I went to the doctor, she discovered that I had a chronic autoimmune illness. When treated, that illness can be managed rather easily, but if I hadn't had treatment, it could have eventually become fatal. Additionally, as a transgender person, I have benefitted a great deal from gender confirmation services covered under my L.A. Care plan, including surgery and hormones. I am much happier and healthier than I was three years ago. I take better care of my health and I feel better in my body. All of this was made possible through my L.A. Care coverage. Without L.A. Care, I would probably still have an unmanaged autoimmune illness, and even if I had been able to find hormones, I never would have been able to afford gender confirmation surgery. There's no doubt in my mind that L.A. Care has improved my life. I highly recommend L.A. Care to everyone I know who thinks they might qualify. The current threat of repeal of the ACA scares me a lot - if LA Care has changed my life this much, I know it must have been life changing for many other people as well. I hope that Medi-Cal and L.A. Care keep providing exceptional coverage to people in vulnerable situations.
