LHPC Policy Issues

LHPC supports member plans’ mission of providing access to health care for California’s most vulnerable populations by:

  • Promoting policies that expand access and affordability of health care;
  • Supporting cost-effective managed care strategies; and
  • Educating policy makers and the public about the unique and vital contributions of California’s local health plans.

We work closely with the statewide agencies that regulate local health plans – Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) – and with Covered California, the California State Legislature and providers across the state.
