What do I write on expenses/tax deductions part of

the MC-216 Medi-Cal Redetermination form?

Medi-Cal under ObamaCare/ACA/Health Care Reform  is based on MAGI Income, line 37 – 8b of your Tax Return and add in Social Security, Foreign Income & Tax Exempt Interest.

I would venture that your income and expenses are the same rules as filing your tax return, even if you are under the filing threshold.   Plus, the MC 216 form under expenses, even says tax deductions.

 The sample redetermination form  MC 216 states:

We may need some information about people in your household who live with you or are listed on your tax return, who do not have Medi-Cal and who do not want to apply for Medi-Cal.Sample MC 216

Please note that, Medi-Cal wants to cover everyone and may go beyond the law to gather information to do that.  There are also many other programs that Medi-Cal has that you might qualify for and no one would know unless they asked.  Such as:

  1. Hi,

    Just wonder if income on MC216 referring to the new calendar year or the past one? It’s confusing since this is the 1st time I do this annual report. Thank you
