Families with Kids

HPSM Medi-Cal

The Health Plan of San Mateo Medi-Cal program provides health insurance for low-income families with children who meet the income requirements for Medi-Cal. HPSM Medi-Cal covers preventive services for adults and children in addition to basic medical services. Examples of covered services are:

  • Annual check-ups
  • Doctor visits/vision exams
  • Dental services for children
  • Family planning
  • Hospital services
  • Immunizations
  • Prescription medicines
  • Prenatal care
  • Pap and mammography

What are the costs for Medi-Cal insurance?

Families who qualify for “no cost” Medi-Cal, also called full-scope Medi-Cal, receive benefits for free. They are not required to make co-payments for services or monthly payments to keep their coverage. Families who qualify for “share of cost” Medi-Cal, make payments to meet a monthly amount to keep their benefits, and have $1 co-pay for some services.
