Q) i am 60 years old and husband receives qmb ( Medicaid program) why cant i receive Medicaid?
A) There are a few reasons why you might not be eligible for Medicaid, even if your husband is eligible.
- Income limits. Medicaid eligibility is based on income, and your income may be too high to qualify for Medicaid, even if your husband’s income is low enough.
- Resource limits. Medicaid also has resource limits, which are the maximum amount of money and assets you can have to qualify for Medicaid. If your resources are too high, you may not be eligible for Medicaid.
- Medicaid eligibility rules vary from state to state. Medicaid eligibility rules vary from state to state, so it’s important to check with your state’s Medicaid agency to see if you’re eligible.
If you’re not eligible for Medicaid, there are other government programs that may be able to help you pay for health care, such as Medicare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or the Affordable Care Act (ACA). You can find more information about these programs on the website of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
You can also contact your state’s Medicaid agency for more information about Medicaid eligibility and other government programs that may be able to help you pay for health care.
