What property/assets are allowable for Medi-Cal?

Wednesday, Oct. 28th 2020 5:51 AM

The Medi-Cal program determines eligibility for benefits on a “means” tested basis. If a Medi-Cal applicant’s property/assets are over the Medi-Cal property limit, the applicant will not be eligible for Medi-Cal unless they lower their property/assets according to the program rules. The Medi-Cal
eligibility worker looks at how much an applicant and their family has each month. If their property/assets are below the limit at any time during that month, the applicant will get Medi-Cal, if otherwise eligible. If a person has more than the limit for a whole month, Medi-Cal benefits will be
discontinued.
