What We Do

Established in 1997, L.A. Care Health Plan is an independent public agency originally created by the state of California to provide health coverage to low-income Los Angeles County residents. We are the nation’s largest publicly operated health plan. Serving more than 2 million members in five health plans, including two plans providing affordable coverage for the community at large, we make sure our members get the right care at the right place at the right time.

What does diversity mean to you? For L.A. Care, it means an intentional gathering of unique experiences and perspectives that results in our being an effective healthcare leader.

But it’s not enough to just bring diverse individuals together and expect magic to happen. We take our responsibility seriously for fostering a company culture of respect, collaboration and inclusiveness. It’s here at L.A. Care where employees can perform at their best. It’s here where you’ll find a mutual appreciation of differences and a sense of security in contributing ideas. It’s here where you can feel valued for who you are. 

When you come to L.A. Care, you’ll see for yourself this value of diversity in action. From our leadership and employees, to our partner providers and the members we serve, diversity is functioning, thriving and engaging more and more talented individuals in a vital cause. 

We are proud to say that we are all different at L.A. Care. And, we are proud to be united by a common commitment to serving our communities.
