Whether you qualify and what services you can get depends on a few things.
It depends on:
- your age and whether you have minor children,
- your income,
- your parents’ income,
- how many people are in your family,
- your resources (how much money you have and how much property you own),
- whether both parents work full-time, and
- your immigration status.
Medi‑Cal uses different dollar limits for its different programs to determine eligibility. The limits are based on Federal Poverty Level Guidelines. The income limits change every year. For updated information, go to aspe.hhs.gov.
If you get Cal‑WORKs, you automatically qualify for Medi‑Cal.
