PROHIBITION OF MEDI-CAL LIEN ON PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Amends Welfare and Institutions Code section 14006. Provides that the principal residence of a medically needy person, a medically needy family person, or a state-only MediCal person shall not be subject to any lien to repay the cost of medical services covered by MediCal. Eliminates current provision which allows the State to place a lien for medical costs against a principal residence for sale that cannot readily be converted to cash. May be amended by statute passed by 2/3 vote of each house or statute approved by the voters. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This initiative will have a negligible effect on state revenues and spending.
