Medi-Cal Data

Medi-Cal is a way for individuals and families with low income to access needed health care services. Medi-Cal is California’s public health insurance. Participants in CalWORKs and Foster Care are automatically eligible for Medi-Cal. The County of Ventura aims to improve access to health care and insurance for residents. If your income is too high to qualify for Medi-Cal, affordable insurance plans are offered through Covered California and you may qualify for tax credits to lower the cost of your insurance premium.

Around half of current participants became eligible under the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid Expansion eligibility

benefits. However, Restricted or Limited Scope benefits coverage is limited to emergency or pregnancy-related services.
