Relationship to applicant
SECTION A: MEDI-CAL BENEFITS TO CITIZENS AND ALIENS
Citizens and nationals of the United States who meet all eligibility requirement s may receive full Medi-Cal benefits.
Aliens who meet all eligibility requirements may receive either full Medi-Cal benefits (if they are in a satisfactory immigration status) or
restricted benefits limited to emergency and pregnancy-related services (if they are not in a satisfactory immigration st atus).
Satisfactory immigration st atus and full Medi-Cal benefit s for aliens: Federal and st ate law provide that full Medi-Cal benefits may be
received only by aliens who are in a satisfactory immigration status and who meet all eligibility requirements including California residency.
Aliens are in a satisfactory immigration status if they are amnesty aliens with valid and current lawful temporary resident cards (I-688) or
lawful permanent residents or permanently residing in the U.S. under color of law (PRUCOL). The 16 PRUCOL categories are listed in
SECTION B, question 5 below.
Documented aliens not in a satisfactory immigration status who meet all eligibility requirements, including California residency , may
receive restricted benefits (limited to emergency and pregnancy-related services).
Undocumented aliens who meet all eligibility requirements, including California residency , may receive restricted benefits (limited to
emergency and pregnancy-related services).
Citizenship/immigration status information: Every person requesting Medi-Cal is required to provide information about his/her citizenship
or immigration st atus. Immigration st atus information provided as part of the Medi-Cal application is confidential and cannot be used by the
INS for immigration enforcement unless you are committing fraud.
Alien status documents and verification requirements: Aliens who claim to be in a satisfactory immigration status (SIS) for Medi-Cal
purposes must present INS documents that show their immigration status if they have an INS document or are eligible to obtain one. Aliens
who claim to be in an SIS, but who cannot obtain an INS document or replacement receipt (for example, aliens in the last PRUCOL category
indicated in SECTION B below) should submit other evidence establishing their immigration status. INS documents will be verified by the INS.
Aliens who do not have these documents with them, or who have unreadable documents, may bring us receipts which show that they have
applied for replacements. Aliens will have 30 days to do this, or until their Medi-Cal application is ruled on, whichever is longer. If the alien is
otherwise eligible, Medi-Cal will be issued during this period and while the submitted documentation is being verified by the INS. If none of the
documents contains the applicant's photograph, they must show us an identity document which establishes that the applicant is the person
named in the documents.
Social Security number requirement: Every person requesting Medi-Cal who has a Social Security number is asked to provide it to the
county welfare department. U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and aliens claiming to be in a satisfactory immigration status who do not have a
Social Security number must apply for one and provide it to the county welfare department. Aliens in satisfactory immigration status for
Medi-Cal purposes who need help applying for a Social Security number should ask their eligibility worker for assistance. Aliens who are
not in a satisfactory immigration status and who do not have a Social Security number can still get restricted Medi-Cal if they meet all
eligibility requirements.
