Covered California and Medi-Cal
Westside Family Health Center is a Certified Enrollment Entity with Covered California that offers free enrollment services for Covered California and Medi-Cal. Californians can sign-up during the annual open-enrollment period, which begins in the fall. Many others may be eligible to sign-up at any time during the year due to a life-changing event (http://www.coveredca.com/individuals-and-families/getting-covered/special-enrollment/) such as getting married, having a child or moving. Medi-Cal enrollment is year-round. To meet with one of our Certified Enrollment Counselors to find out if you are eligible for Medi-Cal or subsidies through Covered California call 310-450-2191, ext. 234.
