Exciting News for Undocumented Californians' Health Coverage! 🌟

Undocumented Californians now have a reason to celebrate as they become eligible for Medi-Cal insurance. This significant expansion, a result of years of advocacy, is bringing smiles to individuals of all ages, marking a pivotal moment in California's commitment to inclusive healthcare.


Starting January 1, the doors to Medi-Cal will open for undocumented immigrants, offering comprehensive health coverage for the very first time. What's even more exciting is that this coverage includes free eye exams and glasses, ensuring that everyone can access vital eye care services.


The application process is straightforward, taking less than 20 minutes, streamlining access to essential health services. This milestone underscores California's dedication to expanding healthcare coverage for all residents, making it the only state in the nation to provide such extensive support for undocumented individuals.


At Coachella Valley Optometry, we are thrilled to be part of a state that prioritizes inclusivity and the overall well-being of every individual. As we embrace this historic change, our team is here to assist you in navigating this new era of healthcare accessibility.
