I thought Medi-Cal was health insurance for low income families. How does that relate to nursing home care in California?

Yes. Medi-Cal is the name for both California’s free or low cost health insurance coverage for residents who meet certain eligibility requirements AND California’s version of the federal Medicaid program, which provides skilled nursing home care once Medicare benefits have been exhausted.
