  • Do you have to pay Medi-Cal back?

No repayment necessary unless while on Medi-Cal you receive a large windfall such as an inheritence or a monetary settlement. Once you age out and no longer qualify you do not reimburse the government.

You dont have to pay Medi-Cal back unless you get a sum of money that exceeds $2000 or your income is over $908 per month while you are on Medi-Cal in which case you must report that income and they will just close your case. The only time Medi-Cal will try to recover what they have paid out is if you get benefits starting at age 55 and then they can legally levy your estate to recover the money after you die, unless you have a surviving spouse or minor children. Why are there so many questions like this? College students are not eligible for Medi-Cal.

The day you turn 19, you no longer qualify for child welfare. So THAT won't work. Plus, however it is that you can afford to go to school - gifts, scholarships, loans - that counts as income - so you won't qualify that way, either.
