Healthcare

Too often, caregivers encounter obstacles in obtaining medical and mental health services for children in foster care.

What do we do:

The Alliance assists youth in foster care with accessing medical coverage and services. We also conduct trainings throughout Los Angeles County for medical providers, the courts and public and private agencies about foster care and related healthcare and legal issues.

The Alliance:

  • Ensures continuous Medi-Cal coverage for foster youth.
  • Helps current and former foster youth maintain health insurance coverage.
  • Links foster youth to providers.
  • Challenges Medi-Cal denials for youth in foster care.
