Medi-Cal Eligibility

SSI and other categorically-related recipients are automatically eligible. Others, whose income would make them ineligible for public benefits, may also qualify as "medically needy" if their income and resources are within the Medi-Cal limits, (current resource limit is $2,000 for a single individual). This includes:

  • Low-income persons who are 65 or over, blind or disabled may qualify for the Aged and Disabled Federal Poverty Level Program
  • Low-income persons with dependent children
  • Children under 21
  • Pregnant women
  • Medically indigent adults in skilled nursing or intermediate care or those who qualify for Medi-Cal funded home and community based option programs.
