Question: I am a self-employed single parent with health benefits provided by VA for a service connected disability. I have a 19 year old son living with me and going to college. He has no income. Will he qualify for Medi-Cal? Is eligibility based on his income (none) or total household income?
Answer: Your son's eligibility for Medi-Cal or premium assistance in Covered California will depend on your household income. Your VA benefits are not a factor in the determination.
