On January 1, 2023, Medi-Cal health coverage in some counties will change from Fee- For-Service (FFS) Medi-Cal to Medi-Cal Managed Care. Notices will be sent by November 1 and December 1, 2022. Your Medicare benefits and providers will not change.
Joining a Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan will NOT Change Your Medicare Benefits.
Your Medicare benefits will not change after you join a Medi-Cal plan. Joining a Medi- Cal plan will not affect your Medicare providers or choice of Medicare Advantage plan or Original Medicare. Medicare providers do not need to be in the Medi-Cal plan network to continue to provide you care. You can still see your Medicare providers and go to the hospital where you see your Medicare doctors.
Choosing a Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan
Your Medi-Cal plan choices depend on the county you live in, and whether you are in a Medicare Advantage plan. Learn more about your choices by visiting Health Care Options (HCO) or calling 1-800-430-4263.
