L.A. Care's Board of Governors
L.A. Care Health Plan is unique. Committed to the promotion of accessible, affordable and high quality health care, L.A. Care is an independent local public agency created by the State of California to provide health coverage to low-income Los Angeles County residents.
L.A. Care is governed by 13 board members representing specific stakeholder groups, including consumer members, physicians, federally qualified health centers, children’s health care providers, local hospitals and the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services.
L.A. Care members address the Board during one of its monthly meetings.
Over the past year, L.A. Care’s Board of Governors led the health plan to achieve new heights, including:
Adopting a strategic vision to better serve members’ needs with specific milestones for the next three years.
Launching the Antelope Valley direct network to enhance member experience and build an even more efficient provider network in an area where more than 100,000 of our underserved members live.
Issuing plastic member identification cards to ensure quick access to necessary medical information and phone numbers in response to member feedback.
Being named the largest health plan in Los Angeles County, based on membership, by the Los Angeles Business Journal, based on membership (May 2016)
Receiving National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) accreditation, as well as the NCQA Multicultural Health Care Distinction award for its Medi-Cal and L.A. Care Covered product lines.
Holding the first ever offsite board meeting in the Antelope Valley to ensure these members' voices were heard.
