Medi-Cal is health care coverage for qualifying persons who live in California and have income and resources below established limits. Services are based on Federal and State criteria including: income, resources and household size. We offer screening and eligibility determination for seniors or disabled clients for the following programs:
What is the difference between Medi-Cal and Medicare?
Medicare is the Federal Health Insurance Program, whereas Medi-Cal is the California Health Insurance Program. The two programs work together to cover the medical needs of those who are eligible. They both work in conjunction with other health insurance companies (such as Kaiser, Blue Cross, etc) to provide medical services to clients. For more information on health insurance options, please contact Community Healthcare Initiative at 707-227-0830. For assistance with Medicare plans (part D), please contact the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) at 1-888-434-0222.
Who is eligible for Medi-Cal?
Clients must meet certain eligibility criteria prior to being approved for Medi-Cal. The criteria include but are not limited to: resources, income, residency, age, blindness and disability. We review the resources and income for all household applicants. The resource limit for one person is $2000 and for two people is $3000*. The property limit is then increased for each additional dependent person living in the home. Please click here for a list of exempt and countable property.
*The resource level is significantly increased for persons entering Long Term Care (Nursing Home) who have a spouse still living at home. Contact CSOA Medi-Cal staff for more information.
