Basics on Eligibility

CenCal Health does not determine eligibility. Eligibility is determined by Department of Social Services (DSS) and Social Security Administration (SSA). It is important to verify eligibility because:

  • A Benefit Identification Card (BIC) and/or a Member ID Card is not a guarantee of eligibility
  • Members may have a Share of Cost
  • Members may have Other Health Coverage
  • Members may have changed their Primary Care Provider
  • Member might be Special Class and not have a Primary Care Provider
