As of April 2023, California has 14 months to review the eligibility of 15 million MediCal enrollees after suspending this process throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. An estimated two to three million Californians may leave the program during this “unwinding period” that is happening nationwide.
It is critical that enrollees watch out for notifications from their local MediCal offices. If the envelopes are yellow, they need to provide more information and must respond right away to keep their coverage. Enrollees are at risk of getting disenrolled if they do not respond or because of administrative barriers, such as local MediCal offices not having their current contact information.
This briefing will break down the steps involved in the redetermination process, who is at risk for being disenrolled, what people can do to get ready, and how to get information in 19 languages on the DHCS website.
