L.A. Care is the Largest Public Plan in America

As the nation's largest public 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.
