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) Yes, your brother may qualify for Medicaid since he has been approved for Social Security Disability. Medicaid is a government-funded program that provides health coverage to eligible individuals with low income or disabilities. In Texas, the Medicaid program is administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).
Your brother can visit the local Medicaid office in Granbury or he can apply online at YourTexasBenefits.com. He may also be eligible for food assistance through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which is also administered by the HHSC. He can apply for SNAP online at YourTexasBenefits.com or by visiting the local SNAP office.
It’s important to note that eligibility for Medicaid and SNAP depends on various factors, such as income and household size. Your brother should provide accurate and complete information when applying to determine his eligibility. If he has any questions or needs assistance with the application process, he can contact the local Medicaid or SNAP office for help.
