Medi-Cal Eligibility: Who Qualifies for Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal eligibility criteria are crucial to understand as they determine who can enroll in the program and access its benefits. For personalized guidance and assistance with determining eligibility, individuals are encouraged to reach out to Families Together of Orange County for support.

Here’s a breakdown of the key factors influencing eligibility:

Medi-Cal Income Limits:

Income limits play a crucial role in determining eligibility for the program. These limits vary based on factors such as household size, with larger households generally having higher income thresholds. Families Together of Orange County can provide specific information regarding income limits and eligibility criteria to help individuals determine their eligibility status accurately.

Medi-Cal Eligibility Calculator:

To simplify the process of determining eligibility, FTOC has developed a Medi-Cal Eligibility Calculator. This tool allows users to input their household income and size to receive an estimate of their eligibility status. While the calculator provides a helpful initial assessment, applicants should still consult with enrollment professionals for personalized guidance and assistance.

Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) vs. Non-MAGI:

The majority of individuals applying for Medi-Cal are assessed based on their Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI). This calculation considers various sources of income, such as wages, interest, and unemployment benefits, while deducting certain expenses. However, some applicants, particularly those with complex circumstances, may be evaluated under non-MAGI guidelines, which take into account additional factors beyond income.

Medi-Cal Expansion 2024:

Individuos entre las edades de 26 y 49 años, que cumplan con los requisitos de ingresos, ahora tienen la oportunidad de disfrutar de los beneficios completos de Medi-Cal, independientemente de su estatus migratorio. Todas las demás reglas de elegibilidad de Medi-Cal, incluyendo los límites de ingresos, aún se aplican.

¿Se Considera a Medi-Cal Una Carga Pública? El Departamento de Seguridad Nacional de los Estados Unidos y los Servicios de Ciudadanía e Inmigración de los Estados Unidos excluyen explícitamente la recepción de beneficios de salud, alimentos y vivienda de la determinación de carga pública. En consecuencia, el uso de los beneficios de Medi-Cal, no afectará negativamente el estatus migratorio de una persona.

Inscripción Simplificada: Families Together puede facilitar el proceso de inscripción. Nuestros servicios de asistencia para la inscripción y Navegadores de Beneficios dedicados están aquí para ayudar a que el proceso sea sencillo y accesible para usted y toda su familia.
