Medi-Cal is available to ALL low-income children, regardless of immigration status.
- In 2015, California passed a law that allows all low-income undocumented children and youth under 19 years old to enroll in full-scope Medi-Cal.
- As of May 16, 2016, all low-income children, regardless of immigration status, are be able to enroll in health coverage and get care.
Begin enrolling your kids TODAY!
Medi-Cal enrollment is available year round. Families can apply in person at their local county human services office, over the phone, online, with a mail-in application, or at a local health center.
The June 23, 2016 US Supreme Court split decision on United States v. Texas DOES NOT impact California’s Medi-Cal expansion to undocumented children. Families can continue to enroll children all year round.
