What is Medi-Cal?

People living in California may qualify for Medi-Cal regardless of age or immigration status if they meet the income eligibility requirements. The use of Medi-Cal will not hurt your immigration case and it does not count for "public charge."

Starting January 1, 2024, assets will not impact your application or renewal for Medi-Cal. Income (not assets) will be considered.
