(Riverside, CA, Thursday, April 18, 2019) – Choosing health coverage is often confusing and can be overwhelming. People who have both Medicare and Medi-Cal have many options for their health coverage – more than they might realize. And some options provide even more benefits than others!
New, free resources can help people find the right healthcare coverage based on what they want from their care, where they want to receive care, and other factors. It helps people make decisions based on the services they want, like help with equipment and supplies, or support in the home. No need to wait for enrollment periods – people with both Medicare and Medi-Cal can change their coverage throughout the year. The My Care My Choice tool is free and easy to use. There is even a section for friends and advisers who help people with Medicare and Medi-Cal make healthcare decisions.
Ryan MacDonald, My Care My Choice, explains this new online tool.
