Qualifying for Medicaid

To qualify, it depends on your income and your disability.

You should qualify if your household income is less than a certain amount.

For people without a disability, this limit is 133% of the Federal Poverty Level. (The Federal Poverty Level is a standard income level that is used to decide who should get benefits.)

BUT: if you have a disability, the income limit may be higher. To make it more complicated, there are different kinds of programs. Click here to see a chart with income limits for the different Medicaid programs. 

Even if your income is higher, it's worth learning more!

If you are getting SSI or FITAP benefits, you automatically qualify for Medicaid!
