Question: What is the difference between Covered California and Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal is good health coverage. A recent survey of Medi-Cal members by the California Healthcare Foundation found that 90% of the members who answered rated Medi-Cal as a good or very good program. Medi-Cal emphasizes prevention-oriented health care that promotes health and well-being and works to ensure that members receive the right care at the right time. Your health care will be free or at a lower cost to you and your family. You can apply online at CoveredCA.com. A single application will let you know if you qualify for Covered California or Medi-Cal coverage. You can also apply in person at your local county human services agency or over the phone by calling (800) 300-1506. If you are determined eligible, Medi-Cal will mail you a packet of available health plans to choose from.
