Children born to women on Full-scope Medi-Cal (or any other Medicaid program) are automatically eligible for full-scope Medi-Cal.
If you are covered by your parents’ health plan when the baby is born, your parents’ health plan is not required to cover your child. You will have to obtain coverage for your baby.
Depending on your income, your child may be eligible for free or low-cost coverage through Medi-Cal or another program. For more information on health care programs, click here.
