Medicaid and Your Resources
You may worry about how your finances will affect your eligibility for Medicaid. This can be especially so if you work, have a home, or have other assets. We want you to know that you have choices. The New York State government allows some people with disabilities who have assets and/or income above the usual Medicaid limit to be eligible for Medicaid, without spending down assets or income. An ICS Medicaid Eligibility Specialist will help you to understand the regulations and your options, and get you the help you need.
