Son Aging Off Medi-Cal?

By on | No Comments

Question: Currently my husband and I are enrolled in a subsidized insurance through Covered California, but our three kids are qualified for Medi-Cal. Our oldest child is turning 18 in December. Will he be moved to our subsidized insurance then? If so, what do we need to do? If not, when will he be qualified for our subsidized insurance?

Answer: Your son will remain on Medi-Cal one more year. Eligibility for Medi-Cal ends at age 19 for a dependent child. When your son is within 60 days of his 19th birthday, notify Medi-Cal to terminate eligibility in the statewide system. This will trigger a qualifying event and your Covered California account will be updated by your county Medi-Cal staff. Once the update to the account has been made the you, your agent, or a CC call center representative can complete the plan enrollment within the Covered California account.
