RAND California Medi-Cal Glossary


RAND California Medi-Cal Statistics provides a snapshot estimate of who in California was on Medi-Cal in a particular year for the month of January. This is only an estimate since a person goes on Medi-Cal one month at a time and is considered to be on Medi-Cal if that person was eligible on only the first or the last day of a particular month. In short, persons on Medi-Cal are considered to be on Medi-Cal the whole month even if they are eligible only one day of that month.


The estimates of the number of persons on Medi-Cal for the year is derived by querying California Department of Health Services Monthly Medi-Cal Eligibility Files (MMEF). Each of these files has information on who was on Medi-Cal for about the last twelve months. Thus, the year 2000 figures estimate those eligible for Medi-Cal for the year 2000.


The following defines Medi-Cal categories or programs as described in Medi-Cal statistics found on RAND California. Users should contact the California Department of Health Services for more information.
