There are New Medi-Cal Rules for People with Disibilities and Seniors in Los Angeles County.

Most people with disibilities and seniors must enroll in a Medi-Cal Health Plan, unless you are already in a plan.

You must enrol by the end of your birthday month. between June 2011 and May 2012.

If you do not enroll in Health Net or L.A. Care Health Plan, you will be put into one!!!


If you already have CCS or GHPP, it won't take you from that doctor, but if you also have other specialist or medical staff who knows your special needs, there is a waiver you can fill out.

If you want to keep your regular doctors, you have to fill out a WAIVER!!!  It's NOT guarenteed to work, but if you don't fill one out, . . . .
