Idaho Emergency Medicaid
When you’re looking into potential medical assistance within the United States, there is no better option to turn toward than Medicaid. It is implemented throughout all 50 states, although they have some different requirements from place to place. With that being said, it’s helping millions of Americans on an annual basis, and it is only looking to increase that number further. The main purpose is to assist those that would more than likely go without proper medical care in any other case; that in itself is something to cheer about. Families and their children will be accounted for with this program.
This benefit program is specifically for those that have a low income, so it isn’t going to be for everybody. If you meet the requirements behind the protocol, you’ll be able to apply and (hopefully) get medical assistance for both yourself and your family. We’ll go through the requirements quickly, as well as how much money you can make (maximum) per year before becoming ineligible.
Idaho Medicaid Program Requirements
The Medicaid program in Idaho isn’t for everybody, you have to meet a very specific list of criteria before you can even consider applying for the services. It’s meant to help those that really can’t pay for the medical insurance by themselves, and most of the time, they’re going to meet the criteria being given to them in the Medicaid process.
For the Idaho Medicaid requirements, you need to be a resident of the state of Idaho, a legal alien, permanent resident, certified citizen or even a U.S. National; not only that, but you also have to meet the low income threshold. This threshold is going to vary from state to state, so making sure that you’re aware of your specific state rules is going to keep you one step ahead. You need to be someone who is pregnant, or happen to be a parent of children under the ae of 19; you can also be blind/disabled or over the age of 65 (or have a family member that lives with you who is disabled and requires care).
In regards to the specifics of the annual income threshold for Idaho Medicaid, we’re going to look at it in the sense of how many people live in your home. If you have one person living in a home, the threshold is going to differ from a home with 6 people in it. The thresholds for low to very low income households would be:
Household of 1 – $16,040 per year
Household of 2 – $21,599 per year
Household of 3 – $27,159 per year
Household of 4 – $32,718 per year
Household of 5 – $38,277 per year
Household of 6 – $43,837 per year
Household of 7 – $49,396 per year
Household of 8 – $54,956 per year
If you have a household that is comprised of more than 8 people, you can add on an additional $5,559 per person and get the proper amount needed for Medicaid eligibility.
