Assisted Living Financial Assistance in Tucson
Applying for Medicaid can be a daunting task. You have to gather a lot of paperwork and may not know where to start. Plus, the application process can take months or even years.
At Placita In-Home Care, we understand how challenging this process can be. That’s why we’re proud to offer Care Bridge Foundation, a program that provides financial assistance to those who are waiting for their Medicaid application to be approved.
What Is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a state and federal program that provides health coverage to low-income individuals and families. In order to be eligible for Medicaid, you must meet certain income and asset requirements.
If you’re over the age of 65 or have a disability, you may also be eligible for Medicaid coverage. In some states, Medicaid expansion has made it possible for adults without children to qualify for coverage. There are many benefits to applying for Medicaid, including:
- Access to quality health care
- Coverage of long-term care costs
- Peace of mind knowing you’re prepared for the future
If you think you may be eligible for Medicaid, we encourage you to apply. The sooner you do, the sooner you can get the coverage and care you need. Assisted living facilities can be very expensive, and without Medicaid coverage, you may have to pay for care out of pocket.
How do I know if I’m eligible for Medicaid?
To be eligible for Medicaid, you must first meet the program’s income requirements. In general, your household income must be at or below 138% of the federal poverty level. However, this amount may be higher or lower depending on your state of residence.
In addition to income requirements, Medicaid also has asset requirements. Your total countable assets must be below a certain limit in order to qualify for coverage. This limit varies from state to state but is typically around $2000 for an individual and $3000 for a married couple.
Economic security is important for everyone, but it’s especially crucial for those who are unable to work due to age or disability. Medicaid can provide the stability and peace of mind that comes with knowing you have access to quality health care.
