Transitional Medi-Cal (TMC)
Transitional Medi-Cal is provided to recipients of cash-based or non cash-based Section 1931(b) Medi-Cal who are discontinued for increased earnings. They are eligible for the TMC Program for up to twelve months. Because the rules developed for Section 1931(b) are in some cases less restrictive than CalWORKs rules it is possible that families leaving cash aid may continue to be eligible for Section 1931(b) Medi-Cal. If not, and if they were discontinued from CalWORKs due to increased earnings, they may be eligible for TMC.
