Medi-Cal Access Program (MCAP) is administered through the Department of Health Care Services. MCAP provides low-cost comprehensive health care for pregnant persons for the duration of their pregnancy and up to 365 days post-partum. Newborns may be covered by the Medi-Cal Access Infant Program for up to two years.
Congratulations! You’re expecting a baby! We want to make it easy for you to get the health coverage you need during your pregnancy!
Below are the MCAP income limits for pregnant individuals based on the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Be sure to count your unborn child(ren) in your family size.
With Medi-Cal Access Program, you qualify for Full-Scope No-Cost Medi-Cal benefits regardless of your citizenship or immigration status.
There are no renewal requirements for Medi-Cal Access Program as benefits are not active beyond 12 months.
