L.A. Care Welcomes More Than 164,000 New Medi-Cal Members

Former Healthy Way LA (HWLA) members transitioned in Medi-Cal Expansion

On January 1, 2014, L.A. Care Health Plan welcomed more than 164,000 former Healthy Way LA (HWLA) beneficiaries as new L.A. Care Medi-Cal members.  They now have access to an expanded range of benefits and rights as Medi-Cal members.

These new Medi-Cal members are adults ages 19 to 64 with no dependent children and incomes below 138% of the federal poverty level. Many former HWLA members are new to health coverage. They may have questions for you — their clinics, doctors and front office staff — about how to access services and prescriptions.  You may find many of those answers by exploring our website or contacting our member services line at (888) 839-9909.  L.A. Care looks forward to our continued collaboration with our provider partners to provide high quality care to these new members and welcome them to Medi-Cal.
