AB 683: Medi-Cal: Eligibility (2019 - 2020)

Summary: 
Current law requires Medi-Cal benefits to be provided to individuals eligible for services
pursuant to prescribed standards, including a modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) eligibility
standard. Current law prohibits the use of an asset or resources test for individuals whose financial
eligibility for Medi-Cal is determined based on the application of MAGI. This bill would require the
department to disregard specified assets and resources, such as motor vehicles and life insurance
policies, in determining the Medi-Cal eligibility for an applicant or beneficiary whose eligibility is not
determined using MAGI, subject to federal approval and federal financial participation.
