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.
