Full scope Medi-Cal for young adults under 26

October 2, 2019
Beginning January 1, 2020, a new law in California will give full scope Medi-Cal to young adults under the age of 26. Immigration status does not matter.  
 
All other Medi-Cal eligibility rules, including income limits, will still apply.
 
To enroll after January 1, go to www.mybenefitscalwin.org. Beneficiaries ages 19-26 currently enrolled in Limited Scope Medi-Cal will automatically shift to Full Scope Medi-Cal on January 1 and do not need to reapply.
