Q) Hey i have a question about how medicaid and food stamps work? Does a yearly income of survival benefits disqualifies me from not being able to receive help for my son? Were from Texas.
A) The rules for Medicaid eligibility are different for each state. Most states offer coverage for adults below a certain income level and people with disabilities. You need to call or visit your state Medicaid Office and speak with a medicaid counselor regarding Medicaid coverage for yourself. (In some states you can apply online, visit your state website)
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.
Maximum for your 82 year old person ($11,490X133%) = $15,281.70 (if she lives alone)
Persons in family/household Poverty guideline
For families/households with more than 8 persons, add $4,020 for each additional person.
