Important: Changes to Medi-Cal rules are coming!
Medi-Cal will be available to all people who are 50 years of age or older who meet all Medi-Cal eligibility criteria, and immigration status will not matter.
These changes will also let people keep more property and qualify for Medi-Cal.
Ask your local county office.
