Medi-Cal and the Medical Baseline Allotment are two different programs. Receiving Medi-Cal does not automatically qualify you for the Medical Baseline allotment.
The Medical Baseline Allotment is an assistance program for residential customers who depend on power for certain medical and independent living needs. The program helps provide a lower rate on your monthly energy bill and extra notifications in advance of a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS).
Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid health care program. This program pays for a variety of medical services for children and adults with limited income and resources. If you or anyone in the household is enrolled in Medi-Cal, you may be eligible for CARE.
