The OC Health Care Agency (HCA) is pleased to announce that recruitment is now open for one seat on the CalOptima Board of Directors.

A County-organized health system, CalOptima serves more than 770,000 low-income children, adults, seniors and persons with disabilities. CalOptima was formed in 1995 in response to a healthcare system that was struggling to meet the needs of vulnerable Orange County residents. Today, CalOptima has grown to be the second largest health insurer in Orange County, but stayed true to its mission of providing members with access to quality health care services.

The HCA is seeking applicants who represent the diverse backgrounds, interests and demographics of Orange County residents and have the experience and expertise to operate a public healthcare system.

To apply for a seat on the CalOptima Board of Directors, please complete an application by January 15th. Applications can be found on the HCA’s website at

OC Health Care Agency, Attention: Torhon Barnes

The selected applicant will serve a four-year term, beginning in February 2021, with the option to serve an additional four-year term, subject to reappointment by the Orange County Board of Supervisors. CalOptima Board meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month at 2 p.m. at CalOptima, located at 505 City Parkway W. in the City of Orange.
