Will My Income Affect My Mother's Application for Medicaid Home-Health Care?

  • November 10th, 2017
When applying for community Medicaid so that I can keep my mother, who has late-stage Alzheimer's, in my home, the application asks for the income of each resident of the household. Will that affect her Medicaid eligibility?

It could. In general, Medicaid eligibility is based on household income. However, there may be waivers available for seniors in your state program. We recommend consulting with a local elder law attorney or social service agency that could provide you with a specific response for your situation and locale.
