If a person applies for Medi-Cal, can they have a principal residence in another state (outside of California) and still qualify for Medi-Cal?

Yes, but the person has to distinguish between “principal residence” and “primary residence”. In other words, they can have a principal residence anywhere, as long as they eventually return to it to live. In order to qualify for Medi-Cal, a person must show that they are presently living in California with the intention to remain permanently, or for an indefinite period. A person could be living in a California nursing home with the intention to remain indefinitely, but still have the intention to eventually return to
their principal residence out-of-state.
