Provider Moral Objection

Some providers have a moral objection to some covered services.
This means they have a right to not offer some covered services if they morally disagree with the services.
If your provider has a moral objection, they will help you find another provider for the needed services. L.A. Care can also work with you to find a provider.

Some hospitals and other providers do not provide one or more of the following services that may be covered under your plan contract and that you or your family member might need:

  • Family planning;
  • Contraceptive services, including emergency contraception;
  • Sterilization, including tubal ligation at the time of labor and delivery;
  • Infertility treatments;
  • Abortion.

You should obtain more information before you enroll.
Call your prospective doctor, medical group, independent practice association, or clinic, or call L.A. Care at 1-888-839-9909 (TTY: 711) to ensure that you can obtain the health care services that you need.

These services are available and L.A. Care must ensure you or your family member sees a provider or is admitted to a hospital that will perform the covered services.
Call L.A. Care at 1-888-839-9909 (TTY 711) if you have questions or need help finding a provider.
