- Over the age of 65
- Blind or disabled
- In a nursing or intermediate care home
- Under the age of 21
- A refugee living in the U.S. temporarily

- Have died

This means that once you apply using CoveredCA.com, you’ll find out which program you qualify for. Some households qualify for both.
What Happens After I apply for Medi-Cal?
Here’s what happens after you apply for Medi-Cal in Stanislaus County:
Your Medi-Cal application will be reviewed by the CSA to determine if you qualify.
This could take up to 45 days.
To check on the status of your application, contact your Local CSA office (see list of locations above).
If the CSA determines you qualify and are approved for Medi-Cal, you will receive a packet in the mail with your Medi-Cal ID card.
Once you receive your Medi-Cal card, which is also known as a Benefit Identification Card (BIC), you can start using your Medi-Cal benefits.
You Must Choose a Health Plan
After you are approved for Medi-Cal, you must choose a health care plan and/or provider within 30 days of receiving your packet.
If you do not choose a plan and/or provider within 30 days, one will be assigned to you.

How do I see a specialist under Medi-Cal?
If you need to see a specialist, your primary care physician (PCP) will refer you.
The services must be approved before you receive them. This is also known as a referral.
However, you do not need a referral for the following:
- PCP visits
- Network Certified Nurse Midwife OB/GYN visits
- Urgent or emergency care visits
- Family planning
- Basic prenatal care from a provider who works with your health plan
- HIV testing and counseling (only minors 12 years or older)
- Treatment for sexually transmitted infections (only minors 12 years or older)
Additionally, minors also do not need a referral for:
- Outpatient mental health for:
– Sexual or physical abuse
– When you may hurt yourself or others
- Pregnancy care
- Sexual assault care
- Drug and alcohol abuse treatment
Additionally, depending on how you qualify for Medi-Cal, the program may pay for all of these services (full-scope Medi-Cal) or just some of them (partial-scope Medi-Cal).
Are there any co-pays, premiums, or out-of-pocket expenses for Medi-Cal?
It depends. If you have a SOC or Share of Cost, you will need to pay that amount each month to your provider.
However, there are no other co-payment, premiums, or out-of-pocket expenses if you see and receive Medi-Cal-covered benefits through a Medi-Cal provider.
What is Medi-Cal Share of Cost?
A Share of Cost (also referred to as a SOC) is the amount of money an individual is responsible to pay towards their medical-related services, supplies, or equipment before Medi-Cal will begin to pay.
You only pay your Share of Cost in the month(s) you receive medical-related services, supplies, or equipment, including prescriptions and In-Home Supportive
After you meet your Share of Cost, Medi-Cal pays for your care for the rest of that month.
What is the Covered California Income Limit?
Here are the income limit guidelines for Covered California Plans based on a percentage of the FPL.
|Covered California Programs Income Limit Guide|
|Federal Premium Tax Credit Eligibility||100%–400%+ FPL|
|Silver 94||100%–150% FPL|
|Silver 87||over 150%–200% FPL|
