Along with some basic requirements, such as U.S. citizenship (or legal status) and proof of California residency, you will need to meet Medi-Cal’s income and asset requirements to be eligible for Medi-Cal for the aged benefits. The income limit varies, depending on where you live, your household size, and the specific program within Medi-Cal for which you are applying. The asset limit is where most seniors run into problems if they failed to plan ahead. As a general rule, an applicant cannot have non-exempt, or “countable resources,” valued at more than $2000.
