There are several different Medicaid programs depending on you and your family’s age, income, and special needs. When you apply for Medicaid, an eligibility specialist will determine which programs are available to you and your family.
Medicaid programs include:
Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) or Community Medicaid

Gross monthly income must fall within 138 percent of the federal poverty guidelines, and can not be receiving Medicare or Supplemental Security Income.
Categorically Needy or Aged, Blind, and Disabled (ABD)
Aged Individuals - 65 and older
Medicare Premium Assistance Programs These programs help Medicare recipients pay for monthly premiums and, in some cases, co-pays.
- Long-Term Care
