MHLA Community Partner Connection Newsletter
Over the next few months, we are featuring a few articles about the history of My Health LA and its predecessor programs. Many of you have been part of this unique and groundbreaking partnership since the very beginning. It has made a tremendous difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals, and other counties – in California and around the nation – have duplicated our programs. Please take a look at the first article below, pulled from some of our old records. And if you have stories or have anecdotes to tell, please email Jorrel Sampana at email@example.com.
As we continue to try to get all My Health LA participants on Restricted Medi-Cal, we will be working with advocates, the Community Health Outreach Initiatives (CHOI) organizations, the Office of Immigrant Affairs and you all to make sure everyone is aware of the Medi-Cal expansion and the sunsetting of My Health LA. Our enrollment numbers are continuing to climb, with the automatic extension and new applications. As you enroll people into MHLA, please enroll them directly into Restricted Medi-Cal too.
We have been working with Health Services Specialty Care to plan for the transition as well, and we have confirmed that clinics will continue to be able to use eConsult (for remaining folks who are ineligible for Medi-Cal) after the end of MHLA. We will get more information to you soon about that, which will include several months without the clinics being required to establish new contracts.
I hope you all are staying cool and taking some time to enjoy family and friends during this summer. Thank you for all you do.
— Anna Gorman, MHLA Director
