Class Description:

Persons 65 or older or the primary caretaker of minor children may be able to receive Medicaid without proving they are disabled if they have limited income. Those under 65 that do not have minor children living with them must prove they are disabled to qualify for Medicaid, in addition to income limitations. But there are other requirements that someone petitioning for Medicaid benefits must meet. This session will provide an in-depth explanation of Medicaid requirements, types of evidence that will satisfy those requirements, the process for Medicaid hearings, and the regulations that form the bases for both.
