“Some in our community don’t know that Medi-Cal insurance is a free or low-cost option for them that covers preventive care as well as diagnosis and treatment of diseases. We want to spread the word that regular clinician visits are important in supporting wellbeing and preventing medical emergencies that can be costly and stressful,” said Dr. Mishra, Medical Director.
Medi-Cal eligibility is available for non-disabled adults aged 19-64 with income levels at or below 138% of the Federal Poverty Level (Refer to U.S. DHHS Federal Poverty Guidelines
and Percentages Chart
