INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SLEEP APNEA.

Just went through this for a relative. Federal laws don't exactly apply to state aid. Household members, for the purposes of Medi-Cal are dependents. You don't have to worry about it at all because you are a separate household - you are not related to your former stepson any longer. If your ex has not included him on tax returns, then, he is probably considered a separate household. I say probably because the law in CA has exceptions.
