LGBTQI SERVICES

Via Care is a federally qualified health center dedicated to providing quality healthcare and treatment for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Non-Conforming community members in the East Los Angeles area. All of our locations are a safe, inclusive space for people to receive compassionate, accurate, non-judgmental and culturally competent care.

We are also committed to providing care to all who need it, so we accept Medi-Cal and most major insurance plans. If you are uninsured, we have enrollers who can help you receive an insurance plan, or we have a sliding scale option which provides you with services for little to no cost.

You can always talk candidly and comfortably with our doctors and other providers, knowing that you’re receiving quality care, regardless of your ability to pay.
