A person over 65 can qualify for Medicaid if very poor or on SSI. You can get the exact income required from your local Department of Human Services or the Social Security Administration. They will check what the person owns and has and the income and the determination comes from that.
Thanks so much!

There are many parts to Medicaid that make it complicated for caregivers and their elderly love ones to understand. That's why here at AgingCare.com we have created a special section for Medicaid and Medicare to help answer caregivers question. https://www.agingcare.com/Medicare-Medicaid

I have included two articles that will help you determine the requirement for and elderly person to qualify for Medicaid.
