MHLA Community Partner Connection Newsletter
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a joyous holiday season and were able to celebrate safely with family and friends. Thank you for being such collaborative partners in 2021 through a very challenging year. Let’s hope for a better 2022, as we continue to work together to serve our My Health LA population and help transition many of them to Medi-Cal. We also will be holding an all-provider meeting later this month to update CPs on the 50+ transition, contract changes, the quality incentive project, the MHLA Community Council and more. Watch out for the invitation!
You should have received a notice right before the holidays entitled “COVID-19 VACCINATIONS OF COUNTY CONTRACTOR PERSONNEL.” Please read it carefully, as all CPs must send in the verification document asap showing that their staff members are fully vaccinated. If you have questions, please visit https://doingbusiness.lacounty.gov or email the contact on the sheet. Feel free to cc me and I can try to get your questions answered as well.
Thank you for all you do and please stay safe. — Anna Gorman, Director of Community Partnerships
