  1. FAQ’s from a consolidated page 

    1. Gwendolyn L says:
      • If you did not receive your BIC Benefits Identification Card or it is lost or stolen, you may ask for a BIC from your county social services office.If your BIC is stolen, you must tell your​ local police and your county social services office. You should give as much information about the theft as possible. If you are issued a new card, your old card will no longer be valid.

        Please contact your local county office.​ Source

        See above for San Diego County

        You can request a benefit replacement card through or through an automated system at 888-472-4463. *

        Are you in a Medi Cal HMO? Try contacting your Insurance Company for a new ID card.

      We’ve been trying all morning to call the county office but they don’t take calls. Do you have any suggestions?
      • See the contact email and fax # I just added at the top of this page



    1. Harry M says:
      Hello, my name is Harry M and my wife is Mary.we need to know HOW? she got on medi-cal as our Kaiser plan now says she has it. and we know she never applied. and if she does have it, why do we NOT have her card?

      she will not be able to get all of her med’s until this is cleared up.

      she will need them soon!
      Our home # is 510 274 xxx; her cell is 510 432 xxxx.

    2. Al R says:
      I’m 75 and my wife is 93. We both have health problems and dementia.We need Medi-cal to help us pay for Health bills.

      Our income is about $22 k.

      Please email because I don’t hear well.

      I need to have an appointment with a person for help on paper work.. They gave me a worker named S. Ancheta and I can’ t get her on the phone. Have her email me

      I cant deal with all the phone recordings. Our land line is xxxx ask for AL Rodes.

      My wife gets confused.


    S Plien says:
    If a person has individual PPO with no deductible, are copay pharmacy benefits covered in entirety with Medi Cal that is not share of cost form (but rather below poverty).If a medication is 15 dollar PPO copay, for instance, does medi cal cover that entire 15?

    How does insurance know that it is covering pharmacy with Medi Cal.

    Is it solely pharmacy that must bill correctly?


  2. The Department of Public Social Services is the phone number that i have for medi-cal in LA county.

    Is that not right?
