  1. My mother-in-law just got her medi-cal card having been here for few years. She currently has no income and does not file taxes.

    I have read that on top of medi-cal, she is better off having a Covered Cal Silver plan.

    I do not quite understand. If she has medi-cal, why does she need another coverage?

    Would be obliged if someone explains the details.

  2. What happens if I qualify and sign up for the enhanced silver plan and receive all of the benefits of said plan. [See above chart]

    However, my income is increased at some point in the year for whatever reason and as a result when I file my taxes I am over the income threshold requiring me to pay some of the excess premium payments back with my taxes.

    Is there a penalty for all of the lower deductibles/copays I was able to utilize under the Enhanced silver plan?
