Families With Mixed Immigration Status


All family members must be listed on the application, regardless of their immigration status or whether they are seeking coverage. We need this information to understand income and family size in order to calculate financial assistance and determine program eligibility. All information provided on the application is confidential. 

Immigrants who are not lawfully present do not qualify for a health plan through Covered California; however, they may qualify for coverage through Medi-Cal if they are younger than age 26 or are 50 or older,  or are pregnant or were recently pregnant.
