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 single adults, kids, families, seniors, 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.
