If you are uninsured, you may qualify for affordable health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”). If you don’t qualify for Obamacare, L.A. County has a no-cost health coverage program and low/no-cost payment programs to help you get the medical care you need. Eligibility rules apply. Here’s some basic information to help you get started.
- If you are low-income, you may qualify for Medi-Cal coverage. More people can get Medi-Cal under health reform. The income limit is higher, and adults without children will be able to apply. Find out more by visiting www.coveredca.com or calling (1-800-300-1506).
- If you are not low-income, you may still qualify for financial help (subsidies) from the government to buy your health insurance on Covered California. Covered California is a place where people can shop for health insurance and find out if they qualify for financial help to make insurance more affordable. Shop by phone (1-800-300-1506) or online at www.coveredca.com.
- If you are low-income, uninsured or uninsurable on account of immigration status or other reasons, the County of Los Angeles runs a no-cost coverage program called My Health L.A. (MHLA) for eligible county residents. This program covers primary care, specialty care, hospitalization, and prescriptions. Click here to find out more.
