What Health Plans Are Available through Medi-Cal?

By on | No Comments

Question: My friend has Anthem Blue Cross through Medi-Cal. How does that work?

Answer: Medi-Cal offers 22 managed care health plans, some of which are also offered by Covered California. Your choices depend on the county in which you live. Most counties offer commercial plans, including Anthem Blue Cross, Kaiser, Health Net, and Molina, as well as local not for profit health plans like L.A. Care. In some counties, one public plan is available and all Medi-Cal members are enrolled in that plan. An example is Cal Optima health plan in Orange County. Every county’s Medi-Cal plans provide the same high quality care to Californians at low or no cost, no matter where you live. The directory of Medi-Cal health plans will give you more information about your specific county.
