4 comments on “Medi-Cal – California’s version of Medicaid

  1. my 20 year old son was on medi-cal but coverage was terminated because our income was too high.

    trying to enroll him on our plans through covered california, he comes up as medi-cal eligible.

    covered california says it is a soft pause and medi-cal will have to release him.

    medi-cal says it is a problem with covered california website. back and forth between the two of them for almost a month and 8 hours of phone call, finally some who knows what to do at medi-cal gets him released.

    he is added to our accounts at covered california. i report a pay raise the next week and bam- he is medi-cal eligible again and our subsidies and coverage under covered california are all messed up again. it is 4 hours on hold and no one at medi-cal will do anything to release him.

    why doesn’t medi-cal help?

  2. It’s been a whirlwind deciding what to do, health-insurance-wise and, after a consultation with our tax guy, we’ve decided to register for Medi-cal. I know you get no money from this, so I’m sorry for wasting your time with Oscar Insurance inquiries.

    Thank you for all of your help.

    We’ll be in touch in the future if, as we hope, we can make enough money to get back on CC.
