The Medicaid income qualification chart varies by state, but the general income limits are as follows:
- For adults without dependent children, the income limit is 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL).
- For children, the income limit is 154% of FPL.
- For pregnant women, the income limit is 138% of FPL.
- For people with disabilities, the income limit is 138% of FPL.
- For people who are 65 years old or older, the income limit is 138% of FPL.
In addition to income limits, there are also resource limits that must be met in order to qualify for Medicaid.
If you are interested in applying for Medicaid, you should contact your local Medicaid office. You can find your local Medicaid office by visiting the website of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
To qualify for Medicaid, individuals and families must meet certain income requirements, which vary by state. In most states, eligibility for Medicaid is based on income at or below 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL). However, some states may have different income requirements or offer coverage to higher income levels. Medicaid eligibility may also depend on other factors such as age, disability, pregnancy, and citizenship status.
To qualify for Medicaid, you must meet your state’s rules for your income and resources, and other rules like being a resident of the state. You might be able to get Medicaid if you meet your state’s resource limit but your income is too high to qualify.
The income eligibility criteria varies by state. For example, a single individual who is 65 years or older must have an income less than $2,742 per month to qualify for nursing home Medicaid, as well as assisted living services and in-home care in states that provide it through HCBS Waivers.
To determine the specific income requirements for Medicaid in your state, you can check with your state’s Medicaid program or visit the Medicaid website. Additionally, you can use the income chart available on the Medicaid website to see if you may qualify based on your income level.
It’s important to note that Medicaid eligibility can be complex and may differ depending on individual circumstances. It’s recommended that you consult with a Medicaid expert or representative to determine whether you qualify for Medicaid benefits in your state.
