Medi-Cal disregards property for individuals whose eligibility is determined using Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI). Property limits still apply to certain other Medi-Cal programs. For an overview of Medi-Cal property rules, click here: Medi-Cal General Property Limitations (MC 007).
Children may be eligible for Medi-Cal regardless of citizenship or immigration status, if they meet all the other eligibility requirements. Adults may be eligible for Medi-Cal coverage of emergency and pregnancy related medical care regardless of citizenship or immigration status, if they meet all the other eligibility requirements.
Individuals with incomes above the MAGI Medi-Cal income limits:
may qualify for subsidies to reduce monthly health insurance premium costs or reduce out-of-pocket costs (such as co-pays and deductibles).
may qualify for Non-MAGI Medi-Cal with or without a Share of Cost.
The Medi-Cal Access Program (MCAP) provides low cost comprehensive health insurance coverage to eligible pregnant women. MCAP is for middle-income families who do not have health insurance and whose income is too high for no-cost Medi-Cal. The program is also available to women who have other health insurance plans that do not cover maternity services or with a maternity-only deductible or copayment greater than $500. For additional information regarding the MCAP program, please visit the website, http://mcap.dhcs.ca.gov/ or call 1-800-433-2611.
