What Does Medicaid Pay For?
In short, everything! If approved for long term care Medicaid, you will be covered for doctor visits, prescription drugs, and even long term stays in a nursing home or assisted living.
Who Is Eligible?
All U.S citizens or legal aliens, who are over 65, or blind, or disabled can be eligible for Medicaid, so long as they meet the clinical and financial requirements. Clinical eligibility means that nursing home level of care is required. Financial eligibility means that one may not have more than $2000 in total assets, and one may not have a monthly income more than $2382. If ones income and assets are over the limits, eligibility can still be obtained if the proper actions are taken.
How to Apply?
An application can be submitted online, or it can be mailed to the board of social services in your county. One can have someone assist them with the application process, as long as they present a signed Designation of authorized representation form (DAR) to the board of social services. Most nursing homes will not complete a Medicaid application for their residents.
