You can check your coverage by logging on to your DHCS account or contact your county office to update your information.
Check your mail for renewal notices
Counties will mail you a letter about your Medi-Cal eligibility. If you’re sent a renewal form, submit your information by mail, phone, in-person, or online, so you don’t lose your coverage.
What happens if you lose your Medi-cal Coverage?
