Over half of all illegal immigrants in California earn incomes so low that they would be eligible for the state Medicaid system Medi-Cal, a new study has found, just as California is about to extend the health insurance to children in the country illegally.
The non-partisan Public Policy Institute of California concluded that, should the deep blue state choose to go further and expand the program to include all illegal immigrants, 51 percent of them would have incomes low enough to be eligible for the program.
The study estimates that there are approximately 2.6 million illegal immigrants living in California, and so approximately 1.4 million would be eligible for Medi-Cal benefits should they be extended to them.
In some areas, such as Los Angeles County, the number of illegal immigrants eligible rises to 58 percent.
To qualify for Medi-Cal on income, a family must be earning less than 138 percent of the federal poverty line. In real terms, for a family of four the eligibility cut off is $32,913.
