How to Qualify for Medicaid

Do you think you qualify for Medicaid?

If you make less than $1,050.00 per month you are eligible for LIS depending on approval by Social Security.

To qualify for Medicaid it will be a 2 step process. First we need to apply for Low Income Subsidy, LIS, it will take about 2-4 weeks for approval. Once the application has been approved by the Social Security, that will trigger a notice to the Texas State Health and Human Services, HHS.

Once HHS receives a notice from the Feds, HHS will send you out a paper application to fill out and verify the information submitted on the LIS application. HHS will have up to 65 days to approve the application and send you out a Medicaid card.

Once you have received the Medicaid card you now qualify for Dual Special Needs Plans called DSNP that combines Medicare and Medicaid into 1 plan robust with benefits.

Once approved you are eligible for a Special Election Period, SEP, and can make a plan change during the year and allowed to make 3 SEP’s changes per calendar year.

You will have to verify each year usually in January to remain eligible for that year.

If you want to put the application in for LIS visit this website to complete the application. Once you have completed this it will take about 2-3 weeks to get your paper application in the mail, be sure to keep an eye out for this letter.
