Adult Medicaid is health insurance for low-income individuals, seniors, and people with disabilities. Eligibility is based on your family’s monthly income and resources that are owned. To receive Medicaid for disability or blindness, you must be evaluated by a doctor. Adult Medicaid covers individuals living at home in a Private Living Arrangement (PLA) or individuals in Long Term Care (LTC) living arrangements. The Medicare Savings Program is a limited assistance Adult Medicaid program for individuals enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B. The Medicare Savings Program can help pay for Medicare premiums, coinsurance, and deductibles. Call 919-989-5300 for more information regarding the different types of Adult Medicaid and Long Term Care Medicaid programs.
