Medicaid is a government-funded program that provides health care coverage to eligible low-income people across the country. In Texas, more than four million people receive coverage including pregnant women, children, adults with disabilities and senior citizens. Those eligible for Texas Medicaid receive medically necessary services including doctors visits, inpatient and outpatient hospital services, home health services and community-based or nursing home care.
Texas residents may qualify for Medicaid coverage if they meet certain income limits. The annual allowable income is $24,731 for single applicants and $33,482 for couples. Seniors who exceed these limits may qualify for the state’s Medicaid Buy-In program, which lets them make monthly payments to receive coverage.
Texas residents can apply for Medicaid online or request assistance by calling (877) 541-7905.
