As of April 3, Medi-Cal enrollees will begin receiving renewal packets with instructions on how to re-register for their health insurance coverage.

To ensure that your renewal goes smoothly, and that there’s no lapse in your coverage, follow the instructions below:

How to Renew

To begin, contact your local Medi-Cal office to verify current contact information. This includes your name, home address, phone number, and email.

Be sure to also report any changes within your household including:

  • A person living in your household has become pregnant or has given birth
  • A family member has moved in or out
  • Changes to income
  • Changes to immigration status
  • Any other important changes that can impact your family’s eligibility for Medi-Cal

You can contact your local office through the following methods:




Once your contact information has been updated with the county, a letter will be issued via mail informing you whether your coverage was automatically renewed, or if additional information is needed. Should this be necessary, you will receive a renewal packet. Complete and return the packet as quickly as possible.

NOTE: Your Medi-Cal coverage will not expire until you have received written notice from your local county determining that you are no longer eligible.
