Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart
Texas’ Medicaid plan helps low-income Texans, including senior citizens and those with disabilities, access quality health care services. The plan covers a wide range of expenses including primary care, hospital inpatient and emergency services, laboratory tests, prescription medications and mental health services.
Seniors who hope to qualify for Medicaid in Texas should be aged 65 or older. They’re limited to an income of $771 per month ($1,157 for married couples), and $2,000 in countable assets ($3,000 for married couples). Texas Medicaid counts all income sources when determining an applicant’s eligibility; however, some assets are exempt including the applicant’s house, car and personal belongings, such as household furnishings and clothing. Seniors who don’t qualify financially may be able to access the program via Texas’ Medicaid spend-down program, which allows applicants with excessive medical expenses to pay their health care bills and count the remaining income toward eligibility requirements.

Optional State Supplement
Seniors who are recipients of the federal SSI benefit are eligible to receive Texas’ Optional State Supplement. In most cases, SSI recipients are automatically enrolled in this program. This is a cash benefit that’s issued each month to help seniors pay for costs like room and board and health care services that aren’t covered by Medicaid. The amount of the benefit varies depending on the recipient’s living arrangement and is typically $60 per month for those residing in Medicaid facilities.
