Widow with pension of $15,556. Am I Eligible for Medicaid?

Q) I am going on a widows pension for around 15,556 a year. Am I
Eligible for Medicaid?

A) ($11490 X 133%) = 15287.70. You are just above the income level. If you have medical needs and have no medical insurance I would still recommend that you apply as there are now a lot of new changes with the New Health Care Law.

The Affordable Care Act of 2010, signed by President Obama on March 23, 2010, creates a national Medicaid minimum eligibility level of 133% of the federal poverty level
