Medi-Cal Backlog.

For introduction see our main Medi-Cal page.

Let alone that we have a backlog of Medi-Cal applications, Covered CA seems to be putting tons of people onto Medi-Cal even if their income is too high.  The CA Department of Insurance has declared the practice of putting people on Medi-Cal and cancelling their subsidized coverage,  for 95,000 people, WITHOUT NOTICE, to be a violation of State Law.  I concur 100%!!!  Even if I’m not an attorney.  Covered CA states they have reached an agreement with Medi-Cal to cover all those people 1.1.2015.  I would like to see that in writing.    LA Times 12.25.2014

About 24,000 California residents who were covered by the Low Income Health Program before the program ended on Jan. 1 might fall into a coverage gap because they do not qualify for Medi-Cal and many are unaware of how to enroll in coverage through Covered California, the state insurance exchange, HealthyCal reports. Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid program (Guzik, HealthyCal, 2/27).
