Requirements for Eligibility
In California, the Medicaid program is known as Medi-Cal. This is a program that assists low income families and individuals as well as seniors, people with disabilities, foster care, and pregnant women with medically necessary procedures, treatment and services. To be eligible for Medicaid services you must meet the following requirements:
- Live in California
- Be in the U.S. legally or be a citizen
- Meet the income requirements as well as the age requirements for the particular California Medicaid Programs
- In some cases you must meet medical criteria
The process of filing for Medicaid can be extremely complicated. It will be to your benefit to have an experienced lawyer to help you through this process. We will be by your side from start to finish ensuring that you have met all eligibility requirements and that your applications have been done properly the first time.
Medicaid is generally reserved for low-income families that are living below or just above the state poverty level. As such, you may be required to verify your income, as well as any health issues you may have (pregnant women applying for Medicaid must have their pregnancy verified by a doctor). If at some point in the future your income goes up, you may lose your Medicaid benefits. It is beneficial for an attorney to help you with your application to ensure that all parts are done correctly and most beneficially for you.
