What to Do When You Have a Medi-Cal Dispute in California
Medi-Cal is California’s public health insurance program. It is much like Medicare, but is a state-run, not federal, program and can work in conjunction with Medicare. Medi-Cal provides health care services for low-income people — including families with children, seniors, persons with disabilities, children in foster care, pregnant women and qualifying individuals with specific diseases such as tuberculosis, breast cancer or HIV/AIDS. There are income limits to qualify for Medi-Cal. If your income exceeds the limit, you may still be eligible, but you may have to pay for a portion of your healthcare expenses.
If your application for Medi-Cal is denied, it does not mean you are out of options. Everyone has the right to an appeal via a State Hearing. Consulting with an attorney before you appeal can greatly increase your chances of a positive outcome.
