Medi-Cal is a program that offers free or low-cost health coverage for children and adults with limited income and resources. If you qualify, you can enroll in Medi-Cal year-round.

Who is eligible for Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal covers low-income adults, families with children, seniors, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, children in foster care and former foster youth up to age 26.

What is the difference between Covered California and Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal offers low-cost or free health coverage to eligible Californian residents with limited income. Covered California is the state’s health insurance marketplace where Californians can shop for health plans and access financial assistance if they qualify for it. Health plans available through Medi-Cal and Covered California both offer a similar set of important benefits, called essential health benefits.

How can I apply for Medi-Cal?

You can give us a call at (800) 650-0922. We will let you know if you qualify for coverage through Covered California or Medi-Cal.

I am no longer eligible for Medi-Cal, what should I do?

If you get a Medi-Cal Notice of Action telling you that you or a member of your household no longer qualifies for Medi-Cal due to changes in income or your household, you may enroll in a health plan through Covered California, but you must act fast. You only have 60 days from the date listed in the Medi-Cal Notice of Action to enroll in Covered California under special enrollment. To avoid a gap in your health coverage, let us help you select a new plan before your Medi-Cal coverage ends. We can also tell you if you qualify for financial help to lower your costs. Call (800) 650-0922 to speak to one of our certified insurance agents.
