Seniors and People with Disabilities
Your Medi-Cal May be Changing
If you are a senior or a person with disabilities you may now need to get Medi-Cal through a health plan or HMO.
This change may not affect you if:
- You have both Medicare and Medi-Cal
- You have share-of-cost Medi-Cal
- Other things, such as being in a nursing home.
Your health care benefits will stay the same. What changes is that you must choose a health plan to care for you.
