Medi-Cal, as a health insurance program, has been covering Californians who couldn’t afford health care since 1966. Currently there are 8.5 million people enrolled. Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Medi-Cal coverage will expand in 2014, making one million to two million new people eligible. In recent surveys, most current individuals enrolled in Medi-Cal report having a positive experience with the program and agree that Medi-Cal provides access to high-quality care.
Beginning January 1, 2014, adults without children, ages 19-64, will be eligible for Medi-Cal. Open enrollment for Medi-Cal coverage for these individuals begins on October 1, 2013. If they are found to be eligible, their coverage begins on January 1, 2014.
