Medicaid Application

Medicaid is a federally funded government program administered by the State of Texas to help certain qualified individuals pay for nursing home care and in some instances, Assisted Living. Long-term healthcare is extremely expensive. In many cases, Medicaid is often the best or only option to help pay for your or your loved one’s skilled nursing care.

Although Medicaid is funded by the federal government, the State of Texas’ Health and Human Services department processes your Medicaid application and determines your eligibility. The state government takes into account your current medical status, income, and assets to determine if your Medicaid application meets eligibility requirements. Once approved, you receive benefits to help pay for your long-term care.

Medicaid Eligibility 

The fundamental requirements for your Medicaid application are as follows:

  • Gross income under $2,313.00 per month.
  • Countable assets under $2,000.
  • Personal needs allowance.
  • To qualify for skilled nursing care under Medicaid, a healthcare professional must confirm that the individual needs long-term care.
