ALL income-eligible kids, regardless of immigration status, qualify for full-scope Medi-Cal. This means that undocumented children will be able to get the full array of preventive and treatment-related health care that they were previously ineligible for because of their immigration status. Medi-Cal is either no or low cost, depending on family income.
Also, if a child is enrolled in health coverage through Medi-Cal or Covered California, they have comprehensive dental coverage too! This means they can get preventive dental services—such as exams, cleanings, and more—as well as fillings and other dental treatments.
