Medi-Cal and Medi-Cal Managed Care

City of Los Angeles Offices

Medi-Cal is a California health care program for many people with low incomes.


Medi-Cal has been expanded to adults 19-64 without children and incomes at or below 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL). For example, for the year 2017 this equals a monthly income of $1,387 for an individual and $2,829 for a family of four.


If you were eligible for Medi-Cal starting January 1, 2015, you will be required to choose a Medi-Cal Health Plan.


In Medi-Cal Health Plans, your Plan will help you find doctors, pharmacies, and other providers in the Plan’s network. The government pays the Plan a fee each month to provide your care. You do not pay anything. Medi-Cal Health Plans are also called “Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans.”
