Medi-Cal Check Your Medi-Cal Eligibility

Medi-Cal eligibility is based mainly on income. For some applicants, property ownership is also considered. Once you apply, HSA will help determine whether you qualify for Medi-Cal or other affordable health care options.

Who is eligible

  • Low-income Californians, including adults, children and their families, persons with disabilities, children in foster care, former foster youth up to age 26, and pregnant individuals
  • Eligible immigrants receive full-scope Medi-Cal or restricted Medi-Cal based on immigration status
  • Uninsured who need free COVID-19 health care: If you are uninsured or have Medi-Call but do not have a regular doctor, call the Medi-Nurse line 24 hours a day. You'll get COVID-19 advice and referrals for free testing and treatment, regardless of income and immigration status.

Good news for young adults: If you are under age 26, you may be eligible for full-scope Medi-Cal coverage starting on January 1, 2020, regardless of your immigration status. Learn more.
