How to renew

We don’t want you or your family to go without health care coverage. Keep your Medi-Cal benefits by renewing on time.

Check your mail

If your county is able to verify your information already on file, they will renew your Medi-Cal member coverage automatically. You will get a notice that confirms your renewal. You are good to go!

If your county is not able to verify your information, you will get a renewal form in the mail. You will need to return your information in one of the ways below.

Submit your renewal form

  • By phone — Call your county social services office
  • By mail or fax — Complete your renewal packet and mail or fax it to your county social services office
  • In person — Visit your county social services office. Someone can help you fill out your form while you are there
  • Create an online account at benefitscal.com to renew online.
Find your county office

After the county gets your renewal form, they will let you know if you still qualify for Medi-Cal coverage. If you do not return the renewal form in time, you will lose your Medi-Cal coverage.

What if you lose your coverage?

If you lose your Medi-Cal coverage, you will get a notice in the mail. You will have 90 days to contact your county social services office to give them the information needed to keep your benefits.
