Question: I am currently enrolled in covered california, MediCal, for 2014. I have been job hunting for a while, and I believe that I may be getting a job soon that pays above 138% of the poverty line (the limit for covered california). If I get this job, will I be required to drop MediCal immediately? By the end of the year? Within a certain number of months? Thank you.
Answer: Yes. it is your responsibility to notify Medi-Cal of your change in income. You will no longer be eligible for Medi-Cal once your household income exceeds 138% FPL. However, if your new household income is between 139% and 400% of FPL, you will be eligible for premium assistance and perhaps cost sharing reductions through Covered California.
