I recently got health coverage through Alameda Alliance (the Medi-cal version). I am having trouble finding a doctor (adult primary care physician) that accepts Alameda Alliance. The only place I can find is Life Long Medical clinic, which is very overburdened--it takes forever to get an appointment and then you spend hours in the waiting room even with an appointment. I'm currently nursing an infant, which makes dedicating hours for to sitting in a waiting very challenging.
Alameda Alliance's website and booklet lists plenty of providers. But when I call to make an appointment they inform me they aren't taking new medi-cal patients.
Can anyone recommend a physician for adults that accepts alameda alliance and is accepting new patients?
Side note-- I do not qualify for Kaiser medi-cal, otherwise I would just do that :(
thank you!!Aug 10, 2017

I am new to Medi-Cal and I need to decide between Alameda Alliance and the medi-cal version of athem blue cross. Does anyone have an experience with these two health care options? On paper they seem very similar, but I imagine in practice they have so pros and cons.
I am also looking for a primary care provider who takes one of these versions of Medi-Cal. I've been to Lifelong Medical, which is the main medi-cal provider in my area. They are clearly over burdened, and it is hard to get an appointment, and once I got an appointment I still waited hours (literally) in the waiting room. I know there are other providers that take medi-cal but it's hard to find out who they are! If anyone has advice I'd be grateful!
**for anyone reading this post looking for prenatal care or an ob/gyn who takes medi-cal, Sutter East Bay on 2500 milvia takes pregnancy Medi-cal (their primary care physicians do not take it, or at least that is my understanding)**^Jun 13, 2017
