I have MediCal now. What is a MediCal Share of Cost (SOC)?
If your income is more than MediCal limits for your family size, you will have to pay a certain amount within the month you have medical expenses. The amount that you pay is called your Share of Cost (SOC). When you pay, or are obligated to pay this amount to your medical provider, then you have ‘met your Share of Cost’ (SOC) for that month. For example, if your SOC is $75, you must first pay or be obligated to pay $75 to your provider(s). You may then receive MediCal approved services at no cost the remainder of that month.
