Starting January 1, 2024, the Medi-Cal asset limit will be completely eliminated. The asset limits were previously increased to $130,000 for a single person in July 2022. With complete elimination, the Medi-Cal program will only consider a person’s income for financial eligibility. When people apply for the Aged and Disabled program, Medicare Savings Programs, Long-Term Care, and other Medi-Cal programs, their assets will not be counted. This is a momentous change for older adults and people with disabilities, the only population groups subject to an asset test under Medi-Cal today. As a result, older adults and people with disabilities will no longer have to prove their assets year after year and face losing their health care coverage improperly when they cannot provide needed paperwork before the deadline.
Join Justice in Aging & Western Center on Law and Poverty for a webinar, Medi-Cal Asset Limit Elimination: What Advocates Need to Know, to learn more about the implementation of this important change and how your clients can benefit from elimination of the asset limit in Medi-Cal.
In this webinar, we will:
- Explain how the asset limit elimination will be implemented
- Explain which Medi-Cal programs the asset elimination applies to
- Explain how the asset limit elimination will impact other Medi-Cal rules, such as estate recovery, and when assets will still matter for income counting purposes
Who should attend:
California advocates and providers working with older adults and people with disabilities enrolled in Medi-Cal or seeking Medi-Cal eligibility.
Tiffany Huyenh-Cho, Director, California Medicare & Medicaid Advocacy, Justice in Aging
David Kane, Senior Attorney, Western Center on Law and Poverty
