  1. Hi Steve,

    I am trying to calculate my income to see if I am eligible for Medi-cal or what I can buy through Covered California [with a certified agent, at no additional charge]. Would you please answer these questions for me:

    1) Does spousal support count as income?

    2) Do gifts count as income?

    3) What time period is taken into account when calculating one’s income?
