What are the medicaid eligibility requirements?
In addition to meeting the criteria for one of the coverage groups, applicants must meet the other eligibility requirements including income, and in some cases, resource requirements. Additionally, the individual must provide and/or cooperate in obtaining proof of citizenship, identity, and state residence. Applications for Medicaid may be taken for persons who plan to enter a Long Term Care (LTC) facility or in a medical institution for medical, surgical, or inpatient psychiatric care or a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility when treatment has or is expected to exceed 12 months or who is in need of home and community based services under a Community Alternatives Program (CAP) waiver program.
