County Eligibility Workers: The Best Choice for a Healthier CA

Under the new health care law, millions more Californians will become eligible for Medi-Cal and subsidized federal health insurance.

Who is the best choice for handling the influx of new enrollees? County Eligibility Workers.

“California’s 25,000 eligibility workers are highly skilled professionals with the training, knowledge, and expertise in guiding people through the complex eligibility and enrollment process for public assistance programs such as Medi-Cal. Our work is to keep the safety net open for everyone.”
