You can apply online on CoveredCA.com. A single application will let you know if you qualify for coverage through Covered California or Medi-Cal. You can also apply in person at your local county human services agency or by phone by calling Covered California at 1-(800)- 300-1506. Once the application is submitted, it will be sent to your local county human services agency for a determination if you are qualified for Medi-Cal. If more information is needed, the county will contact you to provide more documentation. During the next 45 days, the county will mail you a notice telling you if you qualify for Medi-Cal. If you are eligible, you will receive a Medi-Cal benefits identification card (BIC) in the mail and also an information package that explains the available Medi-Cal health plan options in your county and how to enroll.
