The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published two times per week and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you. 

 

Medi-Cal Updates 

In need of affordable healthcare? Medi-Cal, the free or inexpensive healthcare for residents of low-income households, has expanded its eligibility. Since May 1, 2022, full-scope Medi-Cal is now available to all adults ages 50 and older regardless of their immigration status. Prior to that date, access was restrictive to US citizens only. This is a major win for limiting the barriers to healthcare access in our community.  
 

Medi-Cal redetermination processing resumes 

Medi-Cal's annual requirement to renew coverage was paused during the pandemic, allowing approved Medi-Cal beneficiaries to receive benefits without additional action. However, Medi-Cal renewals and negative actions are now being processed again. Public Assistance is set to begin processing redeterminations of approximately 50,546 beneficiaries. Currently, there are 29,903 active Medi-Cal cases.  Beneficiaries must prove they still meet eligibility requirements in order to maintain access to their Medi-Cal benefits. Those who do not update their information prior to July 15th risk losing their benefits.
