Question: Recently, I discovered that I make a few thousand dollars over the Medi-Cal limit for 2014. I'm just now doing my taxes. What should I do? My average is/was $23,000.
Answer: Though it's not clear from your question, I'm going to assume that you are currently receiving Medi-Cal benefits and your income no longer makes you eligible. All you have to do is notify Medi-Cal of your current income. Medi-Cal will drop you from their roles and when that happens you will be eligible for Covered California with premium assistance. You will not be penalized nor have to pay any additional taxes for 2014.
