Apply for Medi-Cal

What is Medi-Cal? 
Medi-Cal offers free or low-cost health coverage for California residents who meet eligibility requirements.  Most applicants who apply through Covered California and enroll in Medi-Cal will receive care through managed health plans. Medi-Cal has always covered low-income children, pregnant women and families.  On January 1, 2014, California expanded Medi-Cal eligibility to include low-income adults.  When you complete a Covered California application, your eligibility for Medi-Cal will automatically be determined.
