persons limit
1 person $901

If you now get General Relief, you can get care at no cost.

If your income/property is over these amounts, the ATP worker will figure out what you must pay.

▣ IS THERE A PROPERTY LIMIT? No, but 1/12 the value of your countable property, such as checking/savings accounts, other real property and stocks and bonds, is added to your countable monthly income to figure your ATP obligation.

▣ CAN I RECEIVE SERVICES IF I HAVE OTHER INSURANCE? Yes, but you must use any medical benefits you have such as private insurance or outpatient Medicare. ATP will cover your private insurance "deductible." ATP will not cover a medi-Cal Share-of-Cost(SOC).

▣ IS CITIZENSHIP OR LEGAL RESIDENCY REQUIRED? No, but you must provide proof of address.

▣ WHERE DO I APPLY? You must request a financial screening appointment at one of the County medical centers. Toll Free Information Line 1 (800) 378-9919.
