Other Health Coverage (OHC) 

Medi-Cal identifies health, dental, specialty mental health, and long-term care insurance belonging to beneficiaries by conducting data exchanges with the Social Security Administration, the California Department of Child Support Services, and various health insurance companies.  When we learn a Medi-Cal beneficiary has other health coverage, we update our Health Insurance System to ensure that Medi-Cal is the payer of last resort.


The OHC Processing Center allows you to update private health insurance and some Medicare plans for Medi-Cal beneficiaries.  Please use the forms below to request changes to a beneficiary's insurance information.



OHC Processing Center Forms

 To add OHC:  OHC Additions

To remove OHC:  OHC Removals


If you cannot use the OHC Processing Center forms, call (800) 541-5555 (outside of California, please call 916.636.1980).  Please allow 24 hours for your request to be processed. 


Note: The OCU Processing Center is only capable of assisting Medi-Cal beneficiaries regarding private health insurance.  Beneficiaries who want to change or have concerns regarding their Medi-Cal managed care plan may call (800) 430-4263.  Beneficiaries who want to enroll or in Medicare may contact (800) 772-1213 for assistance or visit the local Social Security Administration office.
