Medi-Cal

Medi-Cal provides medical insurance to uninsured and underinsured individuals who meet certain eligibility requirements. Medi-Cal categories include families with dependent children, pregnant women, children to age 21, individuals age 65 and older, or individuals determined blind or permanently disabled. In addition individuals with specific health care needs may also qualify for Medi-Cal (e.g., people in need of dialysis, tuberculosis services, Total Parenteral [intravenous] Nutrition [TPN] Services, Breast and Cervical Cancer treatment, Minor Consent services, and nursing home care). The financial requirements vary for each of these programs.
