Medi-Cal Continuous Coverage Requirement


In January 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) declared a Public Health Emergency (PHE) in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. Special rules were put in place during the COVID-19 PHE to allow more people to get access to and keep their Medi-Cal benefits. When the continuous coverage requirement expires at the end of the PHE, California will need to conduct a full redetermination for all beneficiaries.

Your Medi-Cal county eligibility worker may soon contact you to ensure your contact information is correct. If not, please provide the county with your updated information so you can continue receiving important information about your Medi-Cal coverage.

To not risk a gap in coverage, make sure (Spanish):

  • your contact information is up to date,
  • to check your mail for a letter,
  • to complete your renewal form if you received one
