Learn about PHC California and Enroll
Thank you for looking at PHC California. PHC California is a special needs Medi-Cal managed care plan. The plan is a special needs plan because it is designed around the needs of people living with HIV who have been diagnosed with AIDS. This is an important consideration when choosing a health plan if you are HIV-positive and have AIDS.
To be eligible to enroll in the plan, you must:
- Be a Medi-Cal recipient
- Have a prior AIDS diagnosis in your medical record *
- Be at least 21 years of age
- Live in Los Angeles County
The plan’s goal is to keep its members healthy. It does this by promoting routine primary care doctor and specialist visits. It gives members tools to help them follow their doctors’ care plans. Each member gets his or her own registered nurse care manager. This nurse acts as a personal health coach. He or she helps coordinate care. The plan makes sure every member can reach a nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
PHC California is a managed care plan with a California Medi-Cal contract.
* Having a prior AIDS-defining illness or CD4 count below 200 or 14% or less is an AIDS-qualifying diagnosis.
