April 2023 - End of pandemic eligibility reviews
Medi-Cal covers vital health care services, including doctor visits, prescriptions, vaccinations, hospital visits, mental health care, and more. With the official declarations of the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, California will restart yearly Medicaid eligibility reviews using available information to decide if people still qualify for coverage. Medi-Cal is the name used in California for the federal Medicaid program.----------------------------------
July 1, 2022 - Change in Medi-Cal income limits

​​​Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. This is a public health insurance program which provides needed health care services for low-income individuals including families with children, seniors, persons with disabilities, foster care, pregnant women, and low income people with specific diseases such as tuberculosis, breast cancer, or HIV/AIDS.  Medi-Cal is financed equally by the state and federal government. ​​​​

Info here:
Medi-Cal and Covered California use the same application. This means that once you apply using, you’ll find out which program you qualify for. Some households qualify for both.
