Webinar — Findings from CHCF’s Los Angeles Regional Market Study
About This Event
California’s large size means that health care is organized, delivered, and financed differently throughout the state. For the fourth time since 2009, CHCF has commissioned studies of seven large and diverse regional markets that provide details of local health care systems and identify common themes and emerging issues that influence how Californians receive their health care.
In this virtual briefing, CHCF will share results from its report on Los Angeles County. Prior regional reports were released in 2009, 2012, and 2016. The seven markets included in the 2020 project — Humboldt/Del Norte, Los Angeles, Riverside/San Bernardino, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco Bay Area, and the San Joaquin Valley — reflect a range of economic, demographic, care delivery, and financing conditions in California.
What are the key factors affecting the health care market in Los Angeles? What are its unique challenges, how have community leaders addressed those challenges to date, and what are their future plans?
In the briefing, hear from the report’s lead author and three community leaders with a deep understanding of the Los Angeles health care market. They address the critical safety-net role of the Los Angeles County government, how the county’s Federally Qualified Health Centers play an essential and growing safety-net role for Medi-Cal enrollees and uninsured people in the county, and how the market is edging toward consolidation.
