HWLA Transitions into Medi-Cal on January 1
What You Need to Do Next
First, follow the directions in the packet to verify that you are still eligible for Healthy Way LA. If there have been any changes to your income, address, or phone number, please call HWLA (1-877-333-4952) to let them know. This is important because you will receive information about upcoming Medi-Cal changes by mail or phone.
With the change to Medi-Cal, you will have two options:
1. Stay with your current doctor or clinic.
If this is your choice, do nothing. You will be enrolled automatically in a Medi-Cal plan that works with your doctor or clinic.
Very important: Make sure your clinic’s name (Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center) is listed correctly on the form. If it is not correct, or you are not sure, please call Nelson Samayoa at 213-747-5542, ext. 3220.
2. Change plans or doctors.
Read the packet you will receive in November. Inside, you will find information that tells you how to make this change.
If you do not receive a packet in November, call 1-800-430-4263.
If you want to keep your doctor here or continue to receive services here, you must make sure that Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center is listed as the clinic name on your form.
