DHCS MEDIL I 14-45: Clarification of Medi-Cal Eligibility for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) (August 6, 2014)

DHCS has issued this letter to explain that those individuals granted deferred action status through DACA are eligible for full-scope state-funded Medi-Cal as PRUCOLs.  Individuals must meet all other Medi-Cal eligibility requirements.  DACA status will be verified through the federal data hub, SAVE, or by the applicant.  Counties will need to grant full scope through an eligibility workaround.
