In Los Angeles, we’ve partnered with L.A. Care Health Plan to open 14 L.A. Care and Blue Shield Promise Community Resource Centers.
For detailed more information about benefits, review the Blue Shield Promise Medi-Cal Evidence of Coverage (EOC), also known as the Member Handbook.
Your Medi-Cal status is reviewed every year to make sure you and/or your family members still qualify - this is called Annual Redetermination.
If you’ve received a Redetermination notice in the mail or your address or income has changed, act now to avoid disruption in your medical coverage. Blue Shield Promise is here to help you with the Redetermination process or to reapply for Medi-Cal coverage if you lost coverage.
