My Health LA is for people who:

  • Live in Los Angeles County,
  • Are between ages 26 and 49
  • Are low income, and
  • Do not have and cannot get health insurance.

The federal government is no longer enforcing the new Public Charge Rule. This means that immigrants can access health, housing, and nutrition programs, such as Medi-Cal (except for long-term institutional care), public housing, and CalFresh benefits, without fear of a negative impact on their immigration status.

For additional information or questions regarding Public Charge, you may contact the Los Angeles County Office of Immigrant Affairs at (800) 593-8222 or visit oia.lacounty.gov.

On January 1, 2024, the State of California will expand Medi-Cal to individuals between 26 and 49 years of age. As a result, Medi-Cal will be available for EVERYONE regardless of immigration status and the My Health LA program will end on January 31, 2024. To prepare for this transition, MHLA is requesting all program participants enroll in Restricted Medi-Cal before December 31, 2023. This will help all participants move into Full-Scope Medi-Cal on January 1, 2024.

You can also apply for benefits today in English or Spanish. If you have questions about Public Charge, please visit the Benefits Access for Immigrants Los Angeles (BAILA) Network here.
