    • Do you mean on Medi-Cal or with Covered CA subsidies? Click here and get a complementary proposal, benefits and subsidiy calculation. Note that Medi-Cal is 138% of FPL for the whole family. If you are above that, the parents can get Covered CA with enhanced silver and subsidies, while the children stay on till 266% of FPL. In certain northern counties till 322% of fpl. Again, the best way to see is getting the free quote. Even if you don’t qualify for Medi-Cal, with subsidies, the premiums are VERY low!

  1. My question is about my mom, who is both a senior and disabled.

    She is currently receiving Medi-Cal aid since she requires a significant amount of home care during the day and early evenings.

    What is the income level for her to receive 100% Medi-Cal benefits for home care.

    Rather than the rate based on a “cost-sharing reduction”.

  2. i am having a hard time trying to see if i can get medi-cal. i dont understand most of those charts. i am 60 years old drawing ssi – Supplemental Security Income from my deceased husband. i make 18,588.00 a year, i cant work and i am trying to get on disabilty. but not went through yet. can you send me to the right web site, or tell me if i can get it?
