MHLA Community Partner Connection Newsletter

Community Partners,

Thank you everyone for participating in the all-Community Partner webinar on the sunsetting of MHLA and the Medi-Cal expansion. We know that we covered a ton of information and that you will continue to have questions over the next several months. We are all here to answer them and will be right beside you as the program, the CPs and the MHLA participants go through this massive transition.

We are pleased to announce that more than 80% of our MHLA participants are already in Restricted Medi-Cal! There is still a ways to go, but we are starting from a great point and we appreciate you for already doing outreach and enrollment.

Happy Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month! The LA County Libraries has some valuable resources and information about upcoming celebrations. Find out more here: Asian Pacific American Heritage – LA County Library.

We also are celebrating our nurses with National Nurses Week. Thank you for continued compassion, care and dedication! A special shout out to Teresita Aquino, Lorena Mendez and Veronica Christina, our MHLA nurse auditors.

— Anna Gorman, MHLA Director
