The renewal period for members began on Oct. 1, 2020.
It is important to look at your health plan during this renewal period because you could receive additional financial help from the state of California to lower the monthly cost of health insurance. This means you may now qualify for financial help, even if you didn’t in the past. Or you may receive even more help than you did before! The amount of financial help you may get depends on your income, where you live and your family size.
Medi-Cal renewal happens throughout the year, occurring on the anniversary of your enrollment in Medi-Cal.
If members of your household have Medi-Cal, they will receive a Medi-Cal renewal form from their local county human services agency. Complete this form and mail or fax it, along with any information the county requests, to your local county human services agency. You can also renew by visiting your county human services agency in person or by calling the phone number on the renewal notice.
If you lose Medi-Cal coverage, you may enroll in health insurance coverage through Covered California in the special enrollment period due to a loss of coverage.
