Spread the Word!

Everyone should be able to see a doctor when they need to.  Help make sure every former foster youth knows about the benefits of Medi-Cal coverage for former foster youth.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Share our youth flyer and factsheet with your friends, family, colleagues, and former foster youth.
  • When talking to young adults about health care, be sure to tell them that former foster youth qualify for free Medi-Cal coverage until age 26, regardless of income.
  • Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and tell people about on other social media sites.
  • Encourage former foster youth to email [email protected] if they have more questions or are having problems signing up.
