What does Medi-Cal cover?

Published: Feb. 2, 2022Updated: Mar. 17, 2022

Medi-Cal does much more than pay for health care costs. It can also qualify your child for certain government benefits that they could not access otherwise. For example, an individual must be enrolled in Medi-Cal to receive In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS). Vision and dental care are also covered under Medi-Cal. Medi-Cal also helps to pay for a number of Regional Center services, including:

  • Respite

  • Tailored day services

  • Transportation

  • Skilled nursing

  • Behavioral supports

  • Housing and vehicle modifications

  • Day programs

  • Social skills therapy

  • Neuropsychology services
