Question: My friend and his wife are interested in Covered California, but he's a citizen and she is not legally in the US. They file joint taxes... the children are covered under medi-cal and she has emergency medi-cal only. Is there any way for them to take advantage of a subsidy through Covered California?
Answer: This is a 4-person household with the undocumented spouse declining coverage. The husband and children can be eligible for subsidized Covered California coverage and/or Medi-Cal depending on income.
