The California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC), a first-in the-nation HMO consumer rights organization, helps California consumers resolve problems with their health plan and works to provide a more stable and financially solvent managed care system.

The DMHC is made up of a team of dedicated professionals who strive to provide the right care at the right time for California health plan members.

The DMHC operates the Financial Solvency Standards Board, comprised of people with expertise in the medical, financial and health plan industries. The board advises the Director on ways to keep the managed care industry financially healthy and available for the more than 21 million Californians who are currently enrolled in these types of health plans.
