IMPORTANT: Changes to Medi-Cal rules are coming! Medi-Cal will be available to all people who are 50 years of age or older who meet all Medi-Cal eligibility criteria, and immigration status will not matter. These changes will also let people keep more property and qualify for Medi-Cal. Go to or call the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services at 1-866-613-3777.

Pay-for-Performance (P4P) Program

Welcome to L.A. Care Health Plan’s Physician Pay-for-Performance (P4P) Program. The Physician P4P program offers performance-based incentives to qualified high-volume physicians and higher-volume Community Clinics that provide high-quality preventive and chronic care to L.A. Care members.


This program is open to:

  • Solo and small group physicians with 250 or more assigned L.A. Care Medi-Cal members
