I am on Sociai Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) which gives me Medicare as my primary medical insurance. I have been on Medi-Cal for years but want to get off because it is so restrictive. You can only have up to $1000.00 income per month and $2000.00 in assests. In California there is a new law on the books that only $500,000. of your homere is exempt. I don't know what they do if your home is worth more than $500,000. With pre-existing conditoins I have heard that it will be very difficult for me to get a Medi-Gap insurance. I am under 55 so can't get on AARP. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!!
