Don't Lose Your Medi-Cal Coverage
Millions of Californians could soon lose their Medi-Cal health coverage, if they don't act over the next few months. That's because the federal COVID Public Health Emergency is ending, which means eligibility rules are reverting back to the way they were before the pandemic.
Everyone in the program must now go through the redetermination process every year to keep their health care benefits. This is essentially an annual review of whether someone qualifies for Medi-Cal, our state's Medicaid program providing health care and services to adults and children with limited income and resources.
Renewal packets will be mailed to you a few weeks before your Medi-Cal anniversary date, which is the date you applied. You can choose to fill out the forms and send them back; or you can do it online through www.MyBenefitsCalWin.com - available for constituents throughout my district in San Francisco and San Mateo counties. Anyone whose income is too high for the program will be automatically enrolled in Covered California, which has subsidies available to help lower monthly premiums.
If you have any questions or have not received a renewal packet prior to your Medi-Cal anniversary date, you can contact your county's social services agency. Of course, you can always contact my office at 415-557-2312 for assistance. The state assures us they will not cut off someone's health care benefits without multiple attempts to contact them. The first disenrollments will begin in July and will continue for the next year, as people's anniversary dates come up. But don't let it get that far. Act today. I don't want you to be without health care.
P.S. I am hosting a Budget Town Hall on Friday, May 12th at 12:30 p.m. at the Ronald M. George State Office Complex located at 455 Golden Gate Avenue. I will update constituents on the state budget and listen to feedback. Please RSVP here to attend.
