As the nation’s largest publicly operated health plan, L.A.

Care Health Plan is governed by 13 board members representing medical and health care professionals, as well as Medi-Cal consumers. L.A.

L.A. Care advances individual and community health through a variety of targeted activities including a Community Health Investment Fund that has awarded more than $180 million throughout the years to support the safety net and expand health coverage. The patientcentered health plan has a robust system of consumer advisory groups, including the Regional Community Advisory Committees and the Executive Community Advisory Committee, health promoters, six Family Resource Centers that offer free health education and exercise classes to the community, and has made significant investments in Health Information Technology for the benefit of the more than 10,000 doctors and other health care professionals who serve L.A.
