Working every day to improve the lives of our members

Promoting Women’s Health
Women have unique health care needs that are often underserviced. One of our top priorities is to make sure women in California have access to screenings and other preventative health measures they need. We are dedicated to providing access to the full spectrum of care for pregnant women and new mothers – from connecting members to obstetricians to addressing the needs of new mothers after their children are born.
Keeping Families and Children Healthy
MolinaCares is dedicated to the full spectrum of children’s needs, beyond just physical health.
- Food insecurity is an issue plaguing communities across California, and Molina is doing its part to help provide healthy food to California’s children. That’s why Molina has donated more than $100,000 to dozens of organizations in Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego, Orange Count, and Imperial.
- A strong mind is as important as a strong body. Many children in California lack the learning materials they need at home, and Molina is dedicated to helping close the gap.
- Children need positive role models to help guide them to healthy behaviors. Molina is proud to support efforts to enrich children through pairing them with community members who model healthy routines.
- The MolinaCares Accord, in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of California, recently hosted a virtual panel on Helping Children Thrive in a Post-Pandemic World. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond offered welcoming remarks before a panel of experts, moderated by CalMatters reporter Ana Ibarra, and discussed the impact of COVID-19 on children’s health. The panelists focused on how California’s youth can be supported as the state prepares to return to a sense of normalcy with its scheduled reopening on June 15.
Providing Quality Care
MolinaCares is reaching Medicaid members in every corner of the state and providing high-quality health coverage for qualifying Californians. For over 15 years, Molina has served in many of California’s most diverse communities – contacting and interacting with members in schools, health fairs, and other gatherings to connect qualified families to the care they need.
We prioritize serving members in communities across California that lack adequate resources and care, ensuring they are connected to needed health care services.
Recently, MolinaCares hosted a panel of experts to discuss how communities of color have been disproportionally affected by COVID-19 and how to promote health equity across the state. The panelists focused on the social determinants of health and vulnerable communities, the impact COVID-19 on essential workers who are widely staffed by people of color, and the higher rates of job loss and chronic health conditions – putting them at higher risk to the virus. You can watch the full panel here.
Helping those Living with Illness
Community health is as important as individual member health, and MolinaCares is working diligently to keep its members healthy and improve the well-being of entire communities. Through partnerships with community organizations, we can help those living with chronic conditions lead healthier lives. Molina not only covers members’ access to medical treatment, but also prioritizes helping members build healthy habits.
