Do you need help with Medicare questions?
Find out what Medicaid wavier programs are available in your state. If you are interested in becoming a care provider, contact your state office and ask about enrolling as a provider. You do not have to be a nurse, there are a lot of unskilled services you can provide (meal preparation, household chores, lawn care, etc.) This may vary by state. Use a PASS to pay for your unmet business needs.
You can earn up to this amount and not have to worry about losing your Medicaid because of income. You do have to meet the other eligibility requirements.

Important Information About Medicaid!

Important Information About Medicaid!

Sometimes Medicaid, which is an SSI benefit, gets mixed up with Medicare.

The federal government and Social Security administers Medicare and you will have a red, white, and blue card. You always have the same one and the rules are the same in every state.

Medicaid is a SSI benefit. (or for the first two year waiting period for Medicare for SSDI recipients)

Medicaid and SSI are operated by the state and the rules are different in each state. The maximum SSI benefit from the federal government is $733/month for most states, but some states do supplement this SSI benefit amount. Medicaid is for those with disabilities who have little income and resources. You can have both SSI and SSDI, in that case, Medicaid would pay your Medicare premium for you.
