Medi-Cal for Adults

Services from a licensed medical professional received for reasons related to treatment and diagnosis of a medical condition are covered. Prior authorization is required for services received from a doctor who is not in the provider network. Services from a non-contracted specialist also requires a referral from your primary care doctor.

How Much does Medi-Cal Insurance Cost?

Depending on monthly income, some adults may qualify for "no cost" Medi-Cal which means they can receive benefits for free. They are not required to make co-payments for services or monthly payments to keep their coverage. Adults who qualify for "share of cost" Medi-Cal are required to meet a monthly amount of payments for their coverage, in addition to $1 co-pays for some services.
