Health Benefit Enrollment

Certified Enrollment Counselors are on hand to help families with assessing and enrolling our patients into many health programs offered by local, state, and federal government to give you the best options for covering the cost of care. Please note that each of these programs requires certain documents and information, and WMCHC appreciates your cooperation in providing us with this information.

  • Age 19 and older
  • Meet income requirements
  • People that do not have health insurance and cannot get health insurance

Medical, dental, and behavioral health care under My Health LA is free. There is no cost to apply for My Health LA.

How do I enroll?

  • Bring with you a photo ID, proof that you live in Los Angeles County, and something that shows your income, like a pay stub or last year’s tax forms.

Covered California

Covered California is the health insurance market where Californians can purchase brand-name health insurance under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

What documents do I need to apply?

The following documents are needed for every applicant:

  • Proof of income (taxes & paystubs)
  • Proof of Identification (for every applying adult)
  • Proof of Citizenship/Immigration Status (birth certificate, green card, etc.)
  • Social Security numbers for all family members/dependents

When can I apply?

Covered CA applications are accepted only during the annual Open Enrollment period or with qualifying life events during the Special Enrollment period.

If you are uninsured, the open enrollment period is the time to sign up for health coverage for the upcoming year. During this time, you can compare health plans that you are eligible for to make sure that they cover the health and financial needs of yourself and/or your family.

Sliding Fee Discount Program 

If you do not qualify for other health programs, we also offer a Sliding Fee Discount Program. The Sliding Fee Discount Program is based on family size and income, which is determined by the annual Federal Poverty Rate.  Patients will be given a percentage discount based on the sliding fee scale, with the minimum payment of $20.00, including limited labs, x-rays and medication. Checklist of required documents.

Federal Poverty Guideline

The Federal Poverty Guidelines are issues each year by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. They are used to determine the financial eligibility for certain programs and benefits, including Medi-Cal, health insurance, and health coverage programs.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical, dental, or mental health care will cost. Ask the Front Desk for this estimate or request it when making an appointment.

If you have questions, please call 323-987-1200 to speak with an Enrollment Specialist.
