FAQs

Do I have to pay for Medi-Cal?

It depends.

  • If your income is less than Medi-Cal limits for your family size, you will receive Medi-Cal services at no cost to you.
  • If your income is more than Medi-Cal limits for your family size, you will have to pay a certain amount only in the month you have medical expenses. The amount that you pay is called your share of cost (SOC). When you pay or promise to pay that amount, we say that you have met your SOC. Once you have met your SOC, Medi-Cal will pay the rest of your covered medical bills for that month.
