Medi-Medi Plans

Individuals who are over 65 and are also disabled may qualify for both Medicare and Medi-Cal benefits. These individuals are known as “dual eligibles” or “Medi-Medis.”

Coverage includes doctor and dental services, clinic and hospital services, nursing home and home health care, mental health care and some prescription drugs.

Depending on the county you live in, California’s Medi-Medis program has a variety of benefits for California’s seniors that may include covering your co-pays and paying your Part A and B premiums.

Some Medi-Medis may also qualify for California’s Medi-Connect program available in the counties of Alameda, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Mateo and Santa Clara. Medi-Connect is a managed health plan where all of your healthcare costs, including hospital, doctor visits, prescription drug, long term care and in home health care will be provided by one plan.

California’s Medicare and Medi-CAL programs provide great benefits for California’s seniors but are complex.
