Question: CC qualification is based on income only while Medi-Cal is based on both income and assets. So if a person with no income but has more than $2,000 in the bank would not qualify for neither CC nor Medi-cal?
Answer: No. Qualifying for Medi-Cal no longer considers assets if one applies through the Covered California. So, no, a "low-income" applicant cannot be found ineligible for both. On the other hand, if one applies for Medi-Cal directly through the DHCS, assets are still considered. Go figure!
