This 2-page FAQ explains how families on CalFresh can express enroll into Medi-Cal for 2014. California has opted to “express enroll” 153,000 children and about 550,000 adults who are enrolled in CalFresh, but not currently enrolled in Medi-Cal. The “Express Lane Enrollment” process allows these selected individuals to be immediately enrolled in Medi-Cal by simply giving their OK. This is an exciting opportunity to quickly enroll huge numbers of California children and adults in health insurance. The Medi-Cal program provides no-cost coverage for comprehensive health care such as doctor visits, hospital visits, prescription drugs, mental health care, and dental care for children (partial dental for adults starting in May).
