Is retroactive Medi-Cal not a prerequisite to out-of-pocket expense reimbursement?

Must Read

I’m in the process of applying for Medi-Cal (California’s implementation of medicaid) and I was sent a form to provide statement of facts for retroactive coverage/restoration. To my understanding, retroactive Medi-Cal is for unpaid bills.

On the back of the form, there’s information about reimbursement, which talks about bills you’ve already paid. This seems like the official information about it online.

I do have medical bills that amount to $1,000+ that I ended up paying last month and wish I didn’t have to, since I’ve yet to find employment and it’s like more than half of my monthly unemployment benefits.

For full context… I’ve been enrolled in a health insurance plan provided by Covered CA during the last three months and don’t expect its premium to be covered by the reimbursement process or retroactive coverage.

It seems like I can ask for reimbursement for the medical bills (once I’m approved for Medi-Cal) without applying for retroactive Medi-Cal — is that right? I couldn’t find any resources online that confirmed this directly.
