How will I know when my Medi-Cal coverage starts with Alameda Alliance for Health?

Health Care Options will send you a letter to let you know when you are a member of the Alliance. Sometimes it takes 15-45 days after you fill out the Medi-Cal Choice Form for you to become an Alliance member. The Alliance will also tell you in writing within 7 days from the date that your coverage starts. Your coverage will always begin on the first day of the month. Once you become an Alliance member, we will pay for your health care as described in the Alliance Medi-Cal Program Evidence of Coverage.
