Q) My Brother was just accepted for SS Disability. He is age 63. Can he qualify for Medicaid or help with his groceries or anything else. This is new to him & I. I am age 58 & know nothing about all of this. He lives in Granbury Texas & there is a local Medicaid office. Can he go to this office & they help him ?
A) Your brother may qualify for Texas if he has a disability. To be eligible for Texas Medicaid, you must be a resident of the state of Texas, a U.S. national, citizen, permanent resident, or legal alien, in need of health care/insurance assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or very low income. You must also be one of the following:
Be responsible for a child 18 years of age or younger, or
Have a disability or a family member in your household with a disability.
Be 65 years of age or older.
