Using Medi-Cal insurance(California) while visiting North Carolina

Post by chanpraddy »

My mother (age 69yrs) who currently is in California has her Medi-Cal insurance card from the state of CA. She plans to travel to North Carolina to visit her sister and stay there for 4 months.

Can she use her Medi-Cal card for any doctor visits if needed during the time of her stay in NC. Has anyone undergone a similar situation and can clarify this. Thanks.

Like almost all Medicaid plans, emergency services only. See FAQ 7- https://files.medi-cal.ca.gov/pubsdoco/ ... s_faq.aspx

Does she also have Medicare Part B? If so, that could factor in.
