What is Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid program for people with limited income and resources. It provides health insurance options to low-income adults, kids, families, seniors, pregnant people, and people with disabilities. Medi-Cal eligibility is based mainly on your income, and in some cases, your property.

Use the Shop and Compare tool on the Covered California Medi-Cal website to see if you or your family may be eligible for Medi-Cal.

Medi-Cal made easy for you – 3 simple steps.

Our goal is to make Medi-Cal easy for you. Here are three simple steps to get started.

    Visit our Medi-Cal FAQs for information about Medi-Cal and eligibility requirements.

  2. Watch your mail for information

    Once your application is processed, simply wait for a letter informing you whether or not you qualify for Medi-Cal. If you do qualify, you will receive a Medi-Cal benefits identification card. You will also receive a Medi-Cal Choice Form to choose your health plan.

    When you are enrolling, select us as your health plan on your Medi-Cal Choice Form. Once we confirm your enrollment, we will mail you a welcome packet.

Keep yourself and your family covered

It is very important to share your correct mailing address, phone number, and email address contacts with the county for updates about your Medi-Cal health plan coverage. Your updated contact information is how the county sends you your Medi-Cal Redetermination or Renewal Packet every year.
