Applying for Medi-Cal Benefits
Health Care Coverage for Low-Income Senior Citizens
If you are age 65 and older and have limited income and resources, you
might be eligible to apply for Medi-Cal, the state of California's
Medicaid health care program. In addition to senior citizens, there are
many other types of individuals with limited resources who might be able
to qualify. According to the California Department of Health Care Services,
these individuals include those who are blind, disabled, pregnant, under
the age of 21, diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer, etc. Once a person
has Medi-Cal, the government usually pays for most or all of that individual's
medical care. This health care program is funded through state and federal
taxes and is different from Medicare.
At Blackwell, Santaella & Jahangiri LLP, our
San Ramon elder law attorneys know that many senior citizens live on fixed incomes and may not be able
to afford health care on their own. Our legal team helps individuals in
this age demographic take the steps to properly apply for Medi-Cal benefits,
helping them lower the chances that their applications will be delayed
or rejected because of preventable complications. When senior citizens
feel they were unfairly denied Medi-Cal benefits, we can fight on their
behalf and help prove their eligibility. For example, it might be possible
to show that a senior citizen was unfairly denied for Medi-Cal because
his or her income and resources were incorrectly calculated.
