Medicaid Attorney in Colorado Springs

Eligibility for Medicaid

Unlike Social Security, Medicaid is not funded entirely on the federal level. Instead, the Federal Government pays for part of the costs associated with this program, while the individual states contribute the remainder of the costs. According to the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, eligibility for Medicaid in this state is reserved for families, children, pregnant women, people with disabilities or blindness and for the elderly. Applications for coverage are evaluated according to factors including the age of the applicant, the size of his or her family, the applicant's income and additional information. Medicaid is a means-tested program, so it is provided for people with limited income and financial resources.

Many people who are eligible to receive benefits through Social Security Disability Insurance are also eligible for Medicaid, provided that their income is below the threshold. Your disability must either be expected to persist for a year or more or to result in death. Given that the requirements for the two programs are similar, if you are qualified for Supplemental Security Income you may also qualify for Medicaid. The former helps to pay for your living expenses, while the latter enables to you to pay for necessary medical treatment. Colorado is among the states in which Social Security decides whether an applicant is eligible to receive Medicaid benefits.

What does Medicaid cover?

The Medicaid program provides benefits for a wide range of medical services, including but not limited to physician visits, prescription drugs, X-rays and other lab work, optometrist visits and eyeglasses, and home health services, as well as certain types of cancer and prenatal programs. Many common types of treatment are not covered, such as acupuncture, chiropractic and any type of cosmetic surgery.
