How Medi-Cal Health Insurance Works
Medi-Cal is a program that offers health coverage for children and adults with limited income and resources.
There are two ways to receive Medi-Cal benefits:
Medi-Cal Plan administered directly by the State of California
This is usually referred to as Medi-Cal Fee-For-Service (FFS), regular or traditional Medi-Cal.
Medi-Cal Plans administered by third-party insurance Plan
These are Medi-Cal benefits administered by a third-party insurance plan that your county has chosen to administer those benefits for its residents.
This is referred to as Medi-Cal HMO, Managed Medi-Cal, or Medi-Cal Health Plans.
Typically, once you sign up for Medi-Cal, you are enrolled in a traditional Medi-Cal FFS plan for the first 30 days.
Within those first 30 days, you will be required to select a Managed Medi-Cal plan (Managed Care Plan).
After the first 30 days, the state transitions you to one of the Managed Medi-Cal plans available in your county.
Most counties in California are now using Managed Medi-Cal plans.
