What About Help With Food and Health Care?
Eligible CalWORKs families qualify for Medi-Cal and most are eligible for CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps). When you apply for CalWORKs, the application is also used to determine eligibilityto both of these programs. The CalFresh program is intended as a supplement to the household budget to help the family meet their food needs. Medi-Cal will pay for most of the family’s health care costs unless there is other medical coverage. The family can decline CalFresh if they don’t want or need the help.
