Do I qualify for Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal is the health care insurance program for low-income individuals who live in California.  Other states call their program Medicaid.  You must financially qualify for Medi-Cal.  Most single individuals will qualify for Medi-Cal if there income is under $1,676 per month.  Most couples will qualify if their income is under $2,267 per month.  If you have disabilities, your income can be slightly higher. 


You can qualify for Medi-Cal even if you have assets.  The state moved the Medi-Cal asset limit from $2,000 to $130,000 for a single individual and from $3,000 to $195,000 for a couple for most Medi-Cal programs.


If you need health insurance, you should apply right away.  They will screen you for all of the Medi-Cal programs and put you in the best one for your family.  You can apply for Medi-Cal at your county welfare office or online.
