Medical Financial Assistance (MFA)
Medical Financial Assistance (MFA), located at San Joaquin General Hospital,
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.
