It’s Time to Ditch the Deductible

February 23, 2022

The Medi-Cal share of cost program is a critical pathway to health care coverage for older adults and people with disabilities, but the income limits are so outdated they force people to spend more than half of their income on health care costs and live on just $600 a month. But there’s a fix for that.

Last week Assemblymembers Arambula and Wood introduced AB 1900, which would raise the amount people can retain for basic needs from $600 to 138% of the poverty level, and make a huge difference in the monthly budgets of low-income older adults and people with disabilities. This visual fact sheet shows how the solution would play out for individuals.
