Currently, there are 14.5 million Californians in some sort of Medi-Cal health care program. This represents a 16 percent increase since March 2020, largely attributed to continuous coverage requirements of the PHE. Based on Medi-Cal outreach mailings that had a 12 percent return rate, undeliverable, DHCS estimates that upwards of 2 million people could lose their Medi-Cal coverage due to loss of contact.
Santa Barbara County sent a letter saying the couple did not qualify for Medi-Cal. They then received a letter from Covered California stating that they no longer qualified for any subsidy. When I accessed the couple’s Covered California account, all of their income information had been erased. When I looked at the transaction history on the Covered California account, Santa Barbara County Medi-Cal office had accessed the account and submitted changes.
The description within the receipt also provided information on the wage rate. For white laborers, the daily rate was $2.50. Chinese labor was paid at $1.50 per man per day. I created a spreadsheet to compare the Chinese labor costs to that of white labor employed by the American River Water and Mining Company. Where the number of men and daily rate was not specifically mentioned, I imputed the daily rate by the total dollar amount. For example, Ah Sune was paid $13.50 for nine days work on cleaning out the Fox’s Ravine ditch in the Rose Springs district. Nine days times $1.50 per day comes out to $13.50.
We started with a full battery charge and 26 miles of all electric motive power. By mile 91, the Niro reported 71.1 MPG. When I hit mile mark 215 with the gasoline engine running continuously for approximately for 185 miles, the MPG was 54. We traveled from Granite Bay, near Sacramento, to Pasadena on I-5.
From the drainage area and mean flow events, the Army Corp of Engineers, based on the time frame of 1903 – 1952, calculated the mean runoff to be 2,840,000 acre feet of water. The final holding capacity of Folsom Lake is 977,000 acre feet of water. The minimum amount of water is 88,000 acre feet*. That makes the holding capacity of Folsom Lake 889,000 acre feet of water. This means that in a normal or average year, enough water flows into Folsom Lake to fill it from dead pool to full capacity 3.19 times.
Health insurance, at a basic level, is asset protection similar to car, life, and home insurance. Most health plans have an annual maximum out-of-pocket amount that limits your liability to outrageous health care bills in the event of an accident or sudden illness. Once the maximum out-of-pocket amount is met, the health plan covers all in-network health care expenses for the rest of the year.
If you are compelled and interested in writing a book, I don’t need to emphasize how important it is to have good content. You will write and compile your book to the best of your ability. It is no sin to be a perfectionist. However, there is cost-benefit equation that you need to consider. For example, if it takes 10 hours to write a sentence or verify a source of information, and the reference in question is not consequential to the overall work, perhaps it is best work around it.
In addition to the above exemptions, Estate Recovery can be waived if substantial hardship exists for the surviving family members. Estate Recovery is targeted at the assets of the deceased beneficiary. If the deceased Medi-Cal beneficiary owns nothing when they die, nothing will be owed. The State will never force children to move to force the sale of a home to satisfy Estate Recovery.
The income section of the Covered California application is very date sensitive. If your application does not show any income in the month you are applying, you will be determined eligible for Medi-Cal. This is because Covered California screens for Medi-Cal eligibility based on your monthly income, regardless of how much income you earned prior to applying for Covered California.
When you receive an inheritance of money, that cash is an asset, no different than a savings account. The inheritance is not counted as monthly income. It is generally considered a one-time lump sum distribution. Consequently, an inheritance of money should not impact your MAGI Medi-Cal eligibility.
