My family is in LA and now in process of policatical asylum application. I have 2 kids. One was born in US and the other is foreigner (also in the applcation).
Now I need to apply medical insurance for the kids here. I heard applying some benifits may have impact to asylum applcation (e.g. taken as public charge). I consulted a local community service. They asked my family condition and invited me to apply medi-cal but did not answer if medi-cal or fresh will impact asylum applicaiton. And they told me to bring the asylum application receipt stuff with me, which makes me nervous.
Does medi-cal have impact to asylum application?
If yes, is there any low-cost medical insurance plan can help us without side-effect?
