IEHP Insurance

Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) is a wellness-focused, Medi-Cal managed care plan serving residents in the Inland Empire (IE) region. It was established in 1994 as the region’s Medi-Cal plan. Today, IEHP also offers metallic plans, including a low-cost silver plan, through Covered California for individuals who aren’t eligible for Medi-Cal.

Why Choose IEHP?

IEHP is known as a health insurance provider that cares about its community and improving access to quality health care. It provides zero-premium or low-cost plans to eligible individuals. IEHP offers advantages such as:

  • Local customer support team
  • Care coordinators to help members plan appointments
  • Free 24/7 nurse advice line
  • More than 8,000 providers and over 90 urgent care centers in its network

What Kind of Insurance Is Inland Empire Health Plan?

IEHP is one of the largest Medicaid health plans in the country. It also offers Covered California plans.

Currently, IEHP is only available to residents in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Residents of these counties can consider three different types of IEHP coverage:

  • IEHP Medi-Cal: This plan is an option for those who qualify for Medi-Cal. Members do not have to pay a monthly premium and will receive benefits like free doctor visits and hospital stays.
  • IEHP DualChoice: DualChoice combines Medi-Cal and Medicare benefits in a single plan. It’s a zero-cost, comprehensive health plan available to qualified residents.
  • IEHP Covered: This is IEHP’s Covered California option for those not eligible for Medi-Cal. IEHP Covered offers low-cost silver plans for qualified individuals, some with zero-dollar monthly premiums. It also provides bronze, gold and platinum plans.

Is IEHP the Same as Medi-Cal?

IEHP is not the same as Medi-Cal — but they work together. Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid program that provides services and benefits through different counties’ managed care plans. IEHP is one of those managed care plans for residents in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

What Are Inland Empire Health Plan Services and Benefits?

Like all Medi-Cal and Covered California plans, IEHP provides essential benefits such as covering emergency services, preventive care and doctor appointments. It also offers vision services and free wellness classes to community members at its resource centers in Riverside, San Bernardino and Victorville.
