L.A. Care Health Plan offers its members a Nurse Advice Line (NAL) service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A team of registered nurses is available to answer any health-related questions. L.A. Care members can access this service by phone or chat live with a nurse using their L.A. Care Connect online member account.
