MEDI-NURSE LINE

1-877-409-9052

Linea Medi-Nurse
California has launched an advice line that can connect you with a nurse, day or night, to talk about COVID-19 symptoms and help connect you with local resources in your area.

These medical professionals are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Who is the line for?  

  • If you don’t have health care coverage.
  • If you have Medi-Cal, but don’t have a regular doctor

The Medi-Nurse line can help with many questions:

  • Helping you understand whether your symptoms might be COVID-19 related, and whether you need to self-isolate and employ home self-care techniques, or whether your individual symptoms mean you should see a health care provider to get COVID-19 testing and/or treatment.
  • Providing you with information in your area, such as contact information for county offices or other county-level resources near you, particularly if you need to see a doctor for testing/treatment, or want to apply for health insurance.
