During the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), Medi-Cal members have been able to keep their coverage regardless of any changes in circumstances. However, once the COVID-19 PHE ends, counties will check if those with coverage still qualify for free or low-cost Medi-Cal.
To ensure continuation of coverage if still eligible, members should report any changes in circumstances to their local county office, including:
- Changes to income, disability status, phone number or mailing address.
- If someone in the household becomes pregnant or if someone moves in.
- Any other changes that may affect Medi-Cal eligibility.
Members may receive a letter from the county asking for information about their Medi-Cal coverage. It is important that members provide the requested information.
Below is the contact information for each county office:
