Medi-Cal for Undocumented Children

Due to agreement between the Legislature and the Governor last year, full-scope Medi-Cal benefits will become available for undocumented children (under age 19) beginning in May. These services will be provided through Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans and will enable undocumented children who enroll to access preventative care and other services that are not currently available through emergency Medi-Cal.

Additional information regarding this change can be found in this article from California Healthline (English and Spanish) and on the page on the DHCS website related to this topic.
