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.

MHLA was a no cost health coverage program for uninsured, low-income individuals in LA County.

On January 1, 2024, the State of California expanded Medi-Cal to all individuals regardless of immigration status and the My Health LA program ended on January 31, 2024.

You may be eligible for Full-Scope Medi-Cal.

For more information on eligibility and how to enroll in Medi-Cal, please contact your medical home clinic. You can also apply for benefits today in English or Spanish.
