My Health LA (MHLA)
My Health LA is a no-cost health care program for low-income individuals who live in Los Angeles County. Participants must be between 26 and 49 years old and unable to get health insurance.
Participants receive primary care at community clinics and specialty, emergency and urgent care at Health Services clinics and hospitals.

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 during 2023. This will help all participants move into Full-Scope Medi-Cal on January 1, 2024.
This upcoming expansion of Medi-Cal eligibility continues California’s ongoing efforts to expand Full-Scope Medi-Cal for everyone regardless of immigration status. This started with youth under 26 in 2020, and older adults 50+ in 2022. For more information on eligibility and how to enroll in Medi-Cal, please contact your MHLA medical home clinic to find out how to enroll in Restricted (Emergency) Medi-Cal. 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.
