Your pharmacy and medication benefits

Change to Medi-Cal Pharmacy Benefit

On January 1, 2022, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will change your pharmacy benefit. Your prescription medications will be covered by “Medi-Cal Rx.” DHCS is working with a new contractor (Magellan) to provide Medi-Cal Rx services.

This does not change your Medi-Cal eligibility or benefits. Starting on January 1, 2022 you will get your Medi-Cal covered prescriptions through Medi-Cal Rx instead of CalOptima.

For assistance, call the Medi-Cal Rx Customer Service Center at 1-800-977-2273 (TTY 711), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Press or say 1 for member support.

Press or say 7 if you are a TTY caller.
