Medical Financial

Medical Financial Assistance (MFA), located at
SJGH, offers health care coverage for services
at San Joaquin County facilities for those who
meet the eligibility requirements, which include
being a legal resident of San Joaquin County,
gross income of less than 300% of the Federal
Poverty Level, and who do not have eligibility
or access to other coverage such as Medi-Cal,
private health Insurance, or Workers’ Compensation.
This program fulfills the County Mandate under
Welfare and Institutions Code 17000.

Major changes to health care coverage
due to the Affordable Care Act.

Childless adults, who are legal residents and who
have incomes under 138% of the federal poverty
level (FPL) can be enrolled into Expanded Medi-Cal
with coverage beginning January 1, 2014. There is
no asset test for this population.

Patients and clients who were denied
Medi-Cal previously should be
encouraged to re-apply.

For those legal residents whose incomes are
above 138% FPL and up to 400% FPL, health insurance is available from Covered CA.
Depending on income and family size, residents may be eligible for tax credits which will substantially lower their premiums. Open enrollment has been extended in 2015.
