People who are able to get Medi-Cal can get complete health care despite their immigration status

These groups include:

  • Lawful people living in the U.S. long-term, or "green card holders."
  • Lawful people living in the U.S. for a short-term.
  • Persons fleeing ill-treatment, like refugees and people seeking safety.
  • Immigrants granted short-term secured status.
  • Non-immigrant status holders, like those with worker or student visas.

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Medi-Cal expansion to include undocumented adults. He did this to provide equal and just health care for all Californians. As a result, Health Net will offer Medi-Cal benefits to Californians despite their immigration status (living in the United States as a legal resident or not), starting January 2024.

When you apply for Medi-Cal, it does not disrupt, or change your immigration status or your status as a United States citizen. Health Net does not collect or report immigration status information.2

You can enroll in Medi-Cal year-round. To enroll, contact Health Net Medi-Cal Enrollment Services toll free at 800-327-0502 (TTY:711), Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
