Q) What requirements do i need to meet too qualify for medicaid ?
A) The requirements to qualify for Medicaid may vary depending on the state you live in, as each state has its own rules and guidelines. However, in general, Medicaid is typically available to low-income individuals and families, children, pregnant women, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities.
To be eligible for Medicaid, you must meet certain income and resource limits, which are typically based on the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) for your household size. In addition, you must be a U.S. citizen or have legal immigration status, and be a resident of the state in which you are applying for Medicaid.
It’s important to note that some states have expanded Medicaid eligibility under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which allows individuals and families with slightly higher incomes to qualify. You can check your state’s Medicaid website or contact your local Medicaid office for more specific information about eligibility requirements and how to apply.
