Here, the Medicaid qualifications for anyone in need of these services in the St. Petersburg area are explained, to make them a little bit easier to understand:
If you are 65 years old or older and you have a medical necessity which requires long-term health care, and you meet the following two qualifications, then you may be eligible for Medicaid benefits. Some examples of medical necessities include blindness or the need to reside in a long-term care facility.
Low Monthly Income
When you calculate the amount of money you earn each month, you are not required to add in the amount of money that your spouse earns. You must, however, keep track of any money you earn from Social Security, IRAs and retirement, and any other sources.
If you have met the previous qualifications, then you must also be able to show that you have less than $2,000 of your own assets.
