Renewal Period and Open Enrollment
All Californians can sign up during open enrollment, which begins Oct. 15, 2019, and continues through Jan. 31, 2020. Many others may be eligible to sign up at any time during the year due to a life-changing event such as getting married, having a child or moving. Medi-Cal enrollment is year-round, as well.
