We have a number of trained Medicaid Determiners working at different locations around the county to help with your Medicaid questions and/or application.
There are numerous categories of Medicaid, each with specific eligibility requirements and benefits packages. When applying for Medicaid benefits for children under 19, pregnancy or family planning services for both men and women, you will be asked to bring in the following documents to your appointment:
Proof of Income
- Pay stubs of last 30 days
- Documents showing any unearned income (such as child support, Social Security benefits, unemployment benefits)
Social Security Numbers of individuals needing Medicaid (S.S. Card not needed)
Proof of Citizenship AND Identity:
- U.S. Birth Certificate
- An American Indian Card issued by the Dept. of Homeland Security
- Passport (can be expired)
- A current State Driver’s License with a picture
- A current State ID card with a picture
- A school ID card with a picture of the individual
Documents proving childcare expenses, if applicable
Medical Insurance Card, if applicable
Proof of Pregnancy, if applicable
We can help with:
1. A Medicaid on site application – This refers to the process of competing an application for ongoing (as opposed to short-term) Medicaid for low income families, children under 19, pregnant women, and women and men who are seeking family planning services.
2. Presumptive Eligibility – This is a short-term (up to 60 days) determination for Medicaid coverage for children and age 19 or for pregnant women. We “presume” the client’s statement regarding citizenship and income is true and correct.
3. QMB/SLIMB: We can help with filling out a Medicaid Application for Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries (QMB) and Specified Low Income Medicare Beneficiaries (SLIMB). Under QMB, you must have or be eligible for Medicare part A (Hospital Insurance). Medicaid will pay your Medicare premiums, deductibles, and co-insurance charges on Medicare covered services only. Medicaid will not cover dental, vision or prescription drugs. Under SLIMB, you must have Medicare part A. Medicaid will pay your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premium only. These forms must be taken to the local ISD office on Roy Rd. for approval.
4. Re-Certification: We also call and remind clients about re-certifying their Medicaid up to two months before their re-certification dates so there is no lapse in Medicaid coverage.
