Renewing Medi-Cal Coverage

Medi-Cal members must renew their coverage each year to keep their health care benefits.

Counties will be able to renew coverage for most members automatically. To do this, the county will try to renew your Medi-Cal coverage using information that they already have about where you live, your immigration status and your income. If the county is able to verify all of your information, your coverage will be renewed and you will receive a notice with this information.

If the county is unable to verify your information, it will send you a renewal form that you must review and return to the county human services agency, along with any additional required information. You may return your information by mail, by fax or over the phone, or you may deliver it to the county human services agency.

Once you complete and return the form and required information, the county will send you a letter to let you know if you still qualify for coverage. If you do not return the renewal form on time, you will lose your Medi-Cal coverage. If you lose your Medi-Cal coverage, you will receive a notice and will have 90 days to contact your county human services agency and provide them with the information needed to continue your coverage.
