Medi-Cal Services & Programs

Attention: Medi-Cal is changing its rules so more people can get covered. Starting January 1, 2024, more adults will be eligible for full Medi-Cal benefits. Immigration status doesn’t matter. Even if you’ve been denied full Medi-Cal recently, you could be eligible now. Also starting in January, assets will no longer count toward your Medi-Cal eligibility. If your coverage was denied, delayed, reduced or stopped because of your assets, ask your local Medi-Cal office to review your case. Learn more about the rule changes and apply today at

Medi-Cal is a health care program that pays for a variety of medical services for children and adults. 

It is almost time to renew your Medi-Cal coverage. You will get a letter in the mail that tells you if your Medi-Cal was renewed automatically by the county or if more information is needed. If you receive a renewal packet or a notice asking for more information, you can submit the information by phone, mail, in person or online.

If your contact information changed, please update your information today by contacting  the Call Center at 800-281-9799, or online at SSASubmit or (To learn more about BenefitsCal, including new features and capabilities, click here.) This may help you keep your Medi-Cal coverage.
