Medi-Cal Insurance Renewals: Keep Yourself and Your family Covered

In March 2020, the federal government waived certain Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program requirements and conditions in response to COVID-19. The easing of these rules helped families with Medi-Cal keep their health coverage during the pandemic. However, Medi-Cal participants must now renew their eligibility in order to continue to receive health benefits through the program. This website has important information in multiple languages for families concerning Medi-Cal renewals.
