Beginning January 1, 2020, all low-income young adults, ages 19 through 25, can enroll in Medi-Cal. Your immigration status does not matter!

 

Covered California

"Immigrants who are not lawfully present do not qualify for a health plan through Covered California; however, they may qualify for coverage through Medi-Cal up to age 19 or for pregnancy coverage. Immigrants who are not lawfully present can also buy private health insurance on their own outside of Covered California. Additionally, some counties offer other health care options for immigrants who are not lawfully present"
