Medi-Cal Coverage Under the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

March 19, 2021

Under the continuous coverage requirements in the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), all Medi-Cal beneficiaries are maintained in their current aid codes until end of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency (PHE). As a reminder, individuals in pregnancy-related aid codes continue to remain eligible for non-pregnancy services, as appropriate, under current COVID-19 PHE protections. Providers are advised to continue submitting claims with applicable diagnosis codes.

Questions concerning eligibility under pregnancy-related aid codes during PHE should be sent to pregnancy@dhcs.ca.gov.
