Health Care for Low-Income Californians: A Primer on Medi-Cal and Covered California [01:01:50]

Because of the Affordable Care Act, low-income Californians have better access to health coverage with the expansion of Medi-Cal, the creation of Covered California, and some county programs. This training will provide a basic overview of these programs, including eligibility requirements, covered services, and due process rights for each program.  Our training will also help advocates issue spot some common questions and problems that health consumers might have.  Medi-Cal is a publicly funded health insurance program that covers many low-income individuals and families in California. Covered California is a health insurance marketplace where Californians can purchase health insurance coverage for themselves and their families, often with subsidies to help with premiums and co-pays.
