Myths About Qualifying for Medi-Cal

Here are 3 of the most common myths about qualifying for Medi-Cal:
* You must “spend down” to poverty level
* There’s a limit on how much you can own
* There’s a limit on how much income you can have

People often assume they must be without any assets before they can meet Medi-Cal resource guidelines. A person applying for Medi-Cal can legally rearrange assets and qualify for Medi-Cal benefits, without spending all their money, or giving away all their assets. There are legal and ethical strategies that preserve assets, while allowing qualification of Medi-Cal long term care benefits. Planning for Seniors designs funding strategies to enable our clients to qualify for Medi-Cal benefits.
