IMPORTANT: Changes to Medi-Cal rules are coming! Medi-Cal will be available to all people who are 50 years of age or older who meet all Medi-Cal eligibility criteria, and immigration status will not matter. These changes will also let people keep more property and qualify for Medi-Cal. Go to or call the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services at 1-866-613-3777.
