Medi-Cal Renewals and More.

Health care advocates in California are urging Gov. Newsom to support a series of changes in Medi-Cal, including allowing for continuous Medi-Cal coverage for the youngest children, better reimbursement rates for community health workers in Medi-Cal, allow families to keep Medi-Cal coverage without disenrollments and improve access to mental health appointments for youth under Medi-Cal. Also, analysts comment on the ways to reapply for Medi-Cal to prevent disenrollment. Finally, on the eve of the deadline for open enrollment, they advise on ways to find a health care plan under Covered California, the state’s health insurance marketplace, which also provides insurance plans options for some undocumented consumers.
