Question: I applied to Covered Cal and am eligible for Medi-Cal in 2014 (just under the income limit). I received nothing for a month until the county uDPS office sent me a note wanting income and residency proof. Is CC forwarding all Medi-Cal apps over to counties and are the county agencies not able to access the Federal Data Hub for verification info?
Answer: Correct. Medi-Cal eligible applications pass through Covered California to the County Office of CA Dept of Health Care Services. Access to the Federal Data Hub may or may not be working right now, but it would be typical to approve an applicant conditionally until proof of income and residency is received.
