Medi-Cal Renewal Form?

By on | No Comments

Question: The Medi-Cal renewal form says "every member of your household who is living with you or is listed on your tax return". I am married filing separately (for a few years now) and qualified for medi-cal for myself and 2 kids last year through Covered California. At that time i was not living with my husband. My questions is should i list my husband or not? We live with him now, but file taxes separately and do not have medi-cal with him.

Answer: Yes. His income is now a factor in your mutual eligibility, so if your household income is above $33k for 4-person household you and your spouse are no longer eligible for Medi-Cal and now eligible for Covered California coverage. But since you file taxes as "married filing separately", you are not eligible for premium assistance.
