Projected Medicaid Eligibility Status
It is very likely the person for whom you’ve completed this form will meet the eligibility requirements for Medicaid long term care in your chosen state. However, this is merely a projection. It is not a determination of eligibility, nor a guarantee. For an official determination, one must complete an application with their state Medicaid office.
Next Steps / Application Assistance Options
The Medicaid application process is confusing, time-consuming and requires significant documentation. It can be especially challenging when applying on someone else’s behalf or when applying outside one’s primary state of residence. Fortunately, there are assistance options (described below) to help families with the application process. It is recommended you contact your Area Agency on Aging first.
