Do you know if you qualify for free Medi-Cal coverage?

  • Were you in foster care in ANY state on your 18th birthday?
  • Do you live in California now?
  • And are you younger than 26?

If you answered yes to the questions above then YES, you qualify!

Chidlren Now has launched a youth-friendly website [Covered to 26] to inform foster youth and their allies about the Medi-Cal extension to age 26. The website includes an informational flyer geared towards youth, a fact sheet, and a document with contact information for individual counties.
