Medi-Cal families in Orange County: Apply to save money now and for the future!

Oct 1, 2021 | Partners & Providers

If you are a part of Medi-Cal for Families and have been paying monthly premiums during the COVID-19 pandemic, Medi-Cal is allowing you to stop paying and receive credits for premiums paid since March 2020.

You could save up to $39 per month!

Here’s how:

  • Sign up for the COVID-19 premium waiver by contacting CHIOC at 855-927-8333 or emailing
  • Families can stop paying the premiums and use that money instead on other necessary expenses.
  • Once the public health emergency ends, families can use the credits, up to $39 per month since March 2020, when premium payments are required again.

For help applying for the Medi-Cal premium waiver, call CHIOC at 855-927-8333 or email
