For other Medi-Cal programs, income and property limits also apply. Even if you are working, own a house, are married, or have no children, you may be eligible for Medi-Cal programs that help pay medical expenses. Any person has the right to apply, but certain conditions must be met to qualify. It is important for anyone in need of medical assistance to contact Placer County Human Services Division to start an application.
