Eligibility to Services
Each program has rules about who qualifies
for assistance. Medi-Cal has a variety of mini-programs with
special rules that cover a wide range of income, property limits and
medical needs. For each public assistance program, facts about the
individual or household, including but not limited to, income, bank
accounts, stocks, vehicles, age and residency, will be verified.

What should I bring when I apply?
Proof of Citizenship -
you MUST have an acceptable form of ID when you go for the
interview to prove that you are a citizen of the United States. To
prove citizenship, provide your birth certificate, driver's license,
work or school ID, or voter registration card. Due to the laws, if
you are a legal alien, you may STILL be entitled to benefits.
Important Papers/Proof of Income
- you will need to show relevant documentation to have your eligibility
determined. Among these are your personal ID, Social Security
Number for everyone in your household, bank books, pay stubs, payroll
check receipts, copies of checks or benefit statements from your Social
Security, pension, SSI or other earned or unearned income. NEVER
WITHHOLD OR GIVE INCORRECT INFORMATION. The information you provide is
checked against other government records and you could lose or reduce
your benefits if the information you give is not true and accurate.
Proof of Employment Status
- you can work and still receive CalFresh. However, you are
probably not eligible to receive CalFresh if you recently quit a job for
no reason or if you are on strike when you apply (unless you could have
qualified before you went on strike). If you do get a job you may
be able to continue to receive most of your CalFresh benefits depending
on the amount of your wages.
Social Security Numbers (SSN)
- you will need Social Security Numbers for every member of
your household, including children, even if they are toddlers or
infants. Since children may not have SSN numbers, you may still
apply for services and ask the worker to give you information on how to
obtain SSNs. You may also call the Social Security Administration
toll free at 1-800-772-1213.

There are two basic programs that provide
assistance with paying for health care for an eligible individual or
family. Each program has its own rules to determine who is
eligible and the amount, if any, of monthly co-payment. Not
all doctors accept these programs for payment, so it is best you check
with your doctor.
provides medical, vision and dental services for people with full-scope
benefits. A person can be eligible for full-scope Medi-Cal benefits if
she/he is a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident alien and meets
other eligibility criteria. Restricted benefits provide emergency
services to individuals without satisfactory immigration status.
Restricted benefits allow a person to use her/his Medi-Cal for

benefits, Medi-Cal will cover pregnancy-related services only.
Based on a person's family size and income, a person may have to pay a
share of cost (SOC) to the provider each month if Medi-Cal is used. A
person with zero SOC pays no portion of the medical expenses whether or
not Medi-Cal is used.
