Applying for Medi-Cal Benefits

Health Care Coverage for Low-Income Senior Citizens

If you are age 65 and older and have limited income and resources, you might be eligible to apply for Medi-Cal, the state of California's Medi-Cal health care program. In addition to senior citizens, there are many other types of individuals with limited resources who might be able to qualify. According to the California Department of Health Care Services, these individuals include those who are blind, disabled, pregnant, under the age of 21, diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer, etc. Once a person has Medi-Cal, the government usually pays for most or all of that individual's medical care. This health care program is funded through state and federal taxes and is different from Medicare.

At Santaella Legal Group, APC, our San Ramon elder law attorneys know that many senior citizens live on fixed incomes and may not be able to afford health care on their own. Our legal team helps individuals in this age demographic take the steps to properly apply for Medi-Cal benefits, helping them lower the chances that their applications will be delayed or rejected because of preventable complications. When senior citizens feel they were unfairly denied Medi-Cal benefits, we can fight on their behalf and help prove their eligibility. For example, it might be possible to show that a senior citizen was unfairly denied for Medi-Cal because his or her income and resources were incorrectly calculated.
