Aged, Blind and Disabled Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Program

Basic Eligibility Requirements
  •  You must be aged 65 or older, or
  •  You must be blind (adults or children), or
  •  You must be disabled (adults or children) 
Citizenship/Immigration Requirements

As of January 1, 2024, a new law in California gives full Medi-Cal to all Californians who qualify for Medi-Cal.  Unlike before, immigration status does not matter. This new law means that all California residents who qualify for Medi-Cal will receive full Medi-Cal benefits, bringing us closer to a Healthy California for All.

Have you been determined disabled?

If you are disabled but have not been determined disabled by the Social Security Administration (SSA), you may complete a disability evaluation conducted by the Disability Determination Service Division – State Programs (DDSD-SP).

Ask your Eligibility Worker about this process.

Renewal Requirements

Your Medi-Cal eligibility must be renewed at least once a year.  

Income Requirements

Below are the income limits to qualify for the Aged, Blind and Disabled Program based on the Federal Poverty Levels (FPL) amounts.

If you do not qualify for this program because your income is over the above limits, you may qualify for Medi-Cal with a Share-of-Cost.
