Income and Medicaid eligibility

Most Georgia residents rely on an income in order to pay their bills and to provide for their families. Oftentimes, their incomes come from their wages, commissions, tips and other pay from the work that they perform. However, individuals may have other sources of income that can affect his or her eligibility for Medicaid.

How do proposed Medicaid changes affect me?

Georgia residents may be following the news around the governor's proposal to marginally expand Medicaid through a delayed waiver application process. The announcement was made recently-adults earning up to $12,000 a year could sign up for health care coverage. This would expand the program to around 50,000 people, provided they continue to work, complete job training and attend school.

Governor announces changes to Medicaid coverage

Many Georgia residents have been anxiously awaiting an announcement from Gov. Brian Kemp about changes to Medicaid eligibility. Recently, the governor announced a number of changes to Medicaid coverage in the state. The plan will make Medicaid coverage available for about 50,000 state workers according to estimates provided by the Governor's staff.

Understanding Medicaid eligibility requirements

Many residents of Georgia who are eligible for Medicare frequently do not understand either the nature of the program or the eligibility requirements. Medicaid is a federally funded plan that provides medical care for individuals and families whose annual net income does not exceed limits specified by the state of Georgia.

What should I know about a Medicaid waiver?

Georgia residents and their families who are elderly, ill or have a condition that requires extensive care will have many concerns when long-term care is needed. Even if the person is covered by Medicaid, there remain issues as to where the care is given and what the living arrangements will be. For those who want to have the care at home or in their community and would prefer not to live in a facility to receive that care, understanding a Medicaid waiver is a critical part of the process. To use a Medicaid waiver, having legal advice can be imperative.

Understanding Medicaid waivers

As elderly people become unable to care for themselves, they often look for financial assistance from various government programs to help them find and pay for necessary care. One of the most useful program is Medicaid, the federal assistance program intended for persons with limited financial resources. Most people would prefer to remain in their homes or in an assisted living facility as they age. The state of Georgia and Medicaid have a program that is designed for such persons: the Community Care Services Program.

All about Medicaid eligibility for Atlanta residents

When it comes to healthcare, there have been many changes in the past half-decade. What was once private insurance has become government-regulated and the effect on all people's healthcare has been enormous. Inherently, government-backed programs have been affected too. Medicaid eligibility thresholds determine who can apply and be approved for Medicaid benefits.

Obtaining Medicaid coverage in Georgia

Medicaid was enacted as a cooperative venture between state and federal governments to provide medical care to low-income families. Participation was made elective on a state-by-state basis, and, unfortunately, the Georgia legislature has chosen to make Medicaid out-of-reach for most Georgia low-income families.

Owner of assisted living facility indicted for Medicaid fraud

Finding an appropriate assisted living facility can be a complex and exhausting task. Now, investigators from the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office have added another layer of complexity: the possibility that the staff of a foundation that provided in-home services to elderly Georgians was stealing its clients' Medicaid payments.
