Eligibility for the state Medi-Cal Program is determined through the Department of Health & Human Services Social Services. Medi-Cal benefits are administered locally through Partnership HealthPlan of California. Medi-Cal serves low-income individuals and families.


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.
