Eligibility[edit] Medi-Cal provides health coverage for people with low income and limited ability to pay for health coverage, including the aged, blind, disabled, young adults and children, pregnant women, persons in a skilled nursing or intermediate care home, and persons in the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program (BCCTP).[4][5][6] People receiving federally funded cash assistance programs, such as CalWORKs (a state implementation of the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program), the State Supplementation Program (SSP) (a state supplement to the federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program), foster care, adoption assistance, certain refugee assistance programs, or In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) are also eligible.[4][6] Beginning in 2014 under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), those with family incomes up to 138% of the federal poverty level became eligible for Medi-Cal (pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1396a(a)(10)(A)(i)(VIII)), and individuals with higher incomes and some small businesses may choose a plan in Covered California, California's health insurance marketplace, with potential federal subsidies.[citation needed] Immigration status[edit] See also: Immigration to the United States Legal permanent residents (LPRs) with a substantial work history (defined as 40 quarters of Social Security covered earnings) or military connection are eligible for the full range of major federal means-tested benefit programs, including Medicaid (Medi-Cal).[7] LPRs entering after August 22, 1996, are barred from Medicaid for five years, after which their coverage becomes a state option, and states have the option to cover LPRs who are children or who are pregnant during the first five years. Noncitizen SSI recipients are eligible for (and required to be covered under) Medicaid. Refugees and asylees are eligible for Medicaid for seven years after arrival; after this term, they may be eligible at state option. Nonimmigrants and unauthorized aliens are not eligible for most federal benefits, regardless of whether they are means tested, with notable exceptions for emergency services (e.g., Medicaid for emergency medical care), but states have the option to cover nonimmigrant and unauthorized aliens who are pregnant or who are children, and can meet the definition of "lawfully residing" in the United States. Special rules apply to several limited noncitizen categories: certain "cross-border" American Indians, Hmong/Highland Laotians, parolees and conditional entrants, and cases of abuse.


Benefits[edit] Medi-Cal health benefits include ambulatory patient services, emergency services, hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, mental health and substance use disorder treatment, dental (Denti-Cal), vision, and long term care and supports.[1] California is one of a few US states that provide Medicaid dental benefits to adults.[8] But given Denti-Cal's bare-bones coverage and the widespread absence of participating dentists in the program, a patchwork of supplemental programs has grown up to fill in some of the gaps, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), a designation that refers to hundreds of health clinics and systems that operate in underserved, low-income and uninsured communities that private-practice dentists tend to avoid, and the state's First 5 county commissions, which are funded by tobacco sales taxes, as well as a sprinkling of county-funded dental care.[8]


Administration[edit] Management structure[edit] Many of these benefits for most beneficiaries are contracted out to Medicaid managed care organizations. Mental health benefits for the seriously and persistently mentally ill and dental benefits are universally excluded from managed care contracts.[citation needed] As of July, 2015, 9.7 million people were enrolled in a managed care plan, representing about 78% of all enrollees.[9] California has several models of managed care which are designated at the county level:[10][11] a County Organized Health System (COHS) model, with one health plan per county, a "two plan model" with one community health plan and one commercial health plan in the county, a geographic managed care model with multiple plans per county, a regional managed care model with 1-2 commercial health plans in many counties, and unique one-county models in San Benito and Imperial counties. In Denti-Cal, the majority of beneficiaries are covered through fee-for-service arrangements, where the state pays dentists directly for services, instead of the managed care model.[8] However, more than 879,000 Denti-Cal enrollees do receive dental care through managed care plans started as experimental alternatives in the 1990s: in Los Angeles County where managed care plans are optional for beneficiaries, and in Sacramento County where they are mandatory.[8] Eleven counties had no Denti-Cal providers or no providers willing to accept new child patients covered by Denti-Cal: Del Norte, Tehama, Yuba, Sierra, Nevada, Amador, Calaveras, Alpine, Mariposa, Mono and Inyo counties.[8] Delta Dental, operating in the same building as DHCS' Denti-Cal division, enrolls dentists into DentiCal, processes claims by dentists, pays dentists and authorizes treatments, and also handles customer service operations and outreach.[8] Government agencies[edit] Medi-Cal is jointly administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), while the county welfare department in each of the 58 counties is responsible for local administration of the Medi-Cal program.[12][13] C4Yourself and CalWIN are statewide online application systems that allows you to apply for benefits.[14][15] County welfare departments and Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans[16] County Department/Agency SAWS consortium Managed care model Managed care plan(s) Alameda Social Services Agency CalWIN Two-plan Alameda Alliance for Health, Anthem Blue Cross Alpine Department of Social Services C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Amador Department of Social Services C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Butte Department of Employment and Social Services C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Calaveras Department of Calaveras Works and Human Services C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Colusa Department of Health and Human Services C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Contra Costa Department of Employment and Human Services CalWIN Two-plan Contra Costa Health Plan, Anthem Blue Cross Del Norte Department of Health and Human Services C4Yourself COHS Partnership HealthPlan of California El Dorado Department of Human Services C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Fresno Department of Social Services CalWIN Two-plan Anthem Blue Cross, CalViva Health[permanent dead link] Glenn Human Resources Agency C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Humboldt Department of Health and Human Services C4Yourself COHS Partnership HealthPlan of California Imperial Department of Social Services C4Yourself Imperial California Health & Wellness, Molina Healthcare Inyo Department of Health and Human Services C4Yourself Regional Anthem Blue Cross, California Health & Wellness Kern Department of Human Services C4Yourself Two-plan Health Net, Kern Family Health Care Kings Human Services Agency C4Yourself Two-plan Anthem Blue Cross, CalViva Health[permanent dead link] Lake Department of Social Services C4Yourself COHS Partnership HealthPlan of California Lassen Lassen WORKS C4Yourself COHS Partnership HealthPlan of California Los Angeles Department of Public Social Services LEADER Two-plan L.A.

Federal regulations are mostly found in Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 42, Chapter IV, Subchapter C (42 C.F.R. 430 et seq.) and state regulations are contained in California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 22, Division 3 (22 CCR § 50005). Costs[edit] Medi-Cal costs are estimated at $73.9 billion ($16.9 billion in state funds) in 2014-15. For comparison, the entire California state budget in 2014-2015 is $156 billion, of which about $108 billion was general funds (not allocated for special expenditures, such as bonds).[17]


Related programs[edit] Partnership for Long-Term Care[edit] The Long-Term Care Partnership Program is a public-private partnership between states and private insurance companies, designed to reduce Medicaid expenditures by delaying or eliminating the need for some people to rely on Medicaid to pay for long-term care services. To encourage the purchase of private partnership policies, long-term care insurance policyholders are allowed to protect some or all of their assets from Medicaid spend-down requirements during the eligibility determination process, but they still must meet income requirements.[18] The California Partnership for Long-Term Care Program links Medi-Cal and the In-Home Supportive Services program, i.e., private long-term care insurance and health care service plan contracts that cover long-term care for aged, blind, or disabled persons.[19] Covered California[edit] Main article: Covered California Covered California is the health insurance marketplace in California, the state's implementation of the American Health Benefit Exchange provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Indigent health programs[edit] Further information: Welfare in California § Indigent programs Since 1933, California law has required counties to provide relief to the poor, including health care services and general assistance.[20] County indigent medical programs can be categorized as California Medical Service Program (CMSP) and Medically Indigent Service Program (MISP) counties.[21] There are 34 CMSP counties and 24 MISP counties. The CMSP county programs are largely managed by the state, whereas MISP counties manage their own programs with their own rules and regulations. Many patients from both the CMSP and MISP county programs transitioned to Medi-Cal when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act took effect in 2014.[22]
