The state Medi-Cal Program is administered through Department of Health and Human Services Social Services. Medi-Cal serves low-income individuals and families. People who receive cash benefits through the CalWORKs and foster care programs may also receive Medi-Cal benefits.
Applications are accepted 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at our main Eureka Office, or at the other DHHS locations.
You may choose to have a face-to-face interview or you can complete the entire process by mail. You can request an application by calling 877-410-8809 at any time.
Medi-Cal applications are also accepted at all hospitals and numerous clinics throughout the county.
