一名社區衛生人員接受Medi-Cal – 2020年10月13日

At One Community Health, we understand that these are difficult times. Many people have lost their jobs, and with them, health insurance. We believe this should never be a barrier to receiving quality health care. In our last post, we discussed some of the options you have if you have lost your health insurance. Today we?ll take a more in-depth look at Medi-Cal. If you are looking for a Medi-Cal provider in Sacramento, give us a call. 

What is Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid healthcare program supported by Federal and state taxes. It was started in 2014 as part of the Affordable Care Act. Since then, Medi-Cal has been able to provide health coverage to approximately 2.7 million Californians who previously did not have coverage. It covers an array of medical services for low-income children and adults.
