Thank you for your patience as we do our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Health Plans to Jointly Operate 14 Community Resource Centers Across Los Angeles County
We are excited to announce that L.A. Care Health Plan and Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan are investing a combined $146 million as part of a five-year commitment to expand Community Resource Centers across Los Angeles County.
The two health plans have a long history of working together, as Blue Shield Promise is one of the Plan Partners that L.A. Care contracts with to serve Medi-Cal members in Los Angeles County. This new collaboration will leverage the strengths of the two plans to help improve overall health outcomes for members and the communities in which they live. Improved health outcomes will also reduce health care costs over time.
The Community Resource Centers will connect members from both plans and the Los Angeles Community to classes and personalized services that will foster community connections, address social needs and keep them active, healthy and informed.
