If not for taxes, when applying for Medicaid, there is a Medi-Cal portion to qualify for. Your parent's income might be just a bit too high to qualify.
In that case, the Medi-Cal portion takes that income and decreases it by your medical expenses. That decrease can be just enough to qualify for Medicaid.
Disclaimer: Hope I got this right, because no one tells you about it in advance, you may need a lawyer that specializes in benefits counseling.
