Learn More About Medicaid Law

Are you confused about your Medicaid rights? At Robert M. Goldberg & Associates, we know how complex Medicaid coverage can be, which is why we’ve put together a thorough guide to help you take your first step toward understanding Medicaid.

Knowing Medicaid

Medicaid is a jointly funded, federal-state health insurance program for people with low-income or limited finances. It is a comprehensive program to cover seniors, children, disabled individuals, and other eligible people with adequate health insurance plans through federally assisted income maintenance payments.

A total of thirty-five states and the District of Columbia offers Medicaid eligibility to people who are qualified for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. In the mentioned states, a Medicaid application is the same as an SSI application. You can become eligible for Medicaid the same month as SSI eligibility begins.

Exploring Your Medicaid Rights

The families that qualify for Work First Family Assistance can also be qualified for Medicaid assistance if they meet minimum income requirements and resources. A family with a high income can also be considered for Medicaid assistance if the family meets a deductible. The family must earn Medicaid bills equal to the amount stated by DSS. When the account is incurred, the coverage begins, and you don’t need to pay them.

Medicaid assistance is also there for people over 65 who have a disability, are blind, or have financial difficulties. These are some of the most common qualifiers for Medicaid coverage, but you can speak with a Medicaid lawyer to learn more about your Medicaid options.

Medicaid Services

Medicaid services are comprehensive and cover payments for hospital care, nursing home care, doctor care, and other common health bills. Prescription bills may also be covered for some selected coverage plans. If you are eligible for Medicaid assistance, you may get coverage for approximately three months before your application.
