Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. This is a public health insurance program that provides needed health care services for low-income individuals including families with children, seniors, persons with disabilities, foster care, pregnant women, and low-income individuals. The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) administers and oversees the Medi-Cal Program in partnership with the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The State and federal government finance Medi-Cal equally.
The DMC Treatment Program provides medically necessary substance use disorder treatment services for eligible Medi-Cal beneficiaries. Services include outpatient drug free, narcotic replacement therapy, day care rehabilitative, Naltrexone, and counseling in residential facilities for pregnant and post-partum women.
