Medicaid is a joint state, federal and city program which offers medical assistance to people with limited assets and low incomes. It is available to individuals who are eligible for SSI (Supplementary Security Income) or public assistance.
Although, Medicaid is also accessible for persons with higher earnings. It covers a wide range of health services, but finances, living arrangements, age and your family situation could always be decisive factors.
In states like Rochester, the Medicaid Surplus Income Program is available for people over sixty five years of age or who are disabled or blind and whose incomes are too high to qualify for SSI or public assistance. These individuals must spend down any extra income on the medical costs until they are able to reach the Medicaid income level.
Medicaid and Asset Protection Advice
As an alternative to spending down, Rochester Hills lawyer permit Medicaid recipients living in the community and certain congregate care facilities to protect all their earnings by the using trusts for income.
Once this eligibility threshold is met, Medicaid covers all types of medical care including doctor bills, hospital care, home care, nursing home coverage and prescriptions.
