Additional Coverage Options for Uninsured Californians
The Medi-Cal program has been expanded to cover low income adults with incomes up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level, or about $1,321 per month or $15,856 per year for a single person.
In addition, low cost health insurance coverage is available to low income individuals and families with incomes above 138% FPL through Covered California. Importantly, Covered California offers financial assistance to help make coverage affordable. Covered California provides subsidies (financial support) to reduce the coast of monthly insurance payments (premiums) and other financial assistance to reduce copayments for health care services.
