LADHS Enrolls Over 200,000 L.A. County Residents into Healthy Way LA-Matched
|July 25, 2012||Posted by Veronika Kiselev under Blog||
As of June 30, 2012, Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (LADHS) had enrolled 200,924 L.A. County residents into HWLA-Matched, L.A. County’s Low Income Health Program (LIHP). Of those enrolled, 59% will be receiving care from LADHS medical homes and 41% from Community Partner clinic medical homes. HWLA was initiated in 2007 as one of 10 Coverage Initiatives during the previous waiver, with 65,000 members grandfathered into the new LIHP program that was initiated on July 1, 2011. At the end of its first year, HWLA-Matched tripled enrollment. The most recent numbers include the General Relief (GR) beneficiaries, auto-enrolled into HWLA starting on June 1. On July 1, 2012, AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) workers began transitioning Ryan White beneficiaries to HWLA-Matched, adding to the growing numbers of low-income Angelenos receiving health coverage leading up to the Medicaid expansion in 2014.
