Kaiser Permanente is currently enrolling undocumented children birth to 18 into their Medi-Cal plan. This enrollment period is VERY limited and could close at any time. Parents interested in enrolling an undocumented minor into Kaiser Medi-Cal should call Maternal and Child Health Access (MCHA) at 213-749-4261.
Children ages 16 and older who qualified for Deferred Action (DACA) may be eligible for full-scope Medi-Cal instead of the emergency Medi-Cal they currently receive. This is an income qualified program, but parents or the “Dreamer” themselves can contact MCHA at 213-749-4261 for more information and assistance in enrolling. Under full-scope Medi-Cal these young adults will have full access to medical benefits.
