When am I eligible for Medicaid?

“Coverage may start retroactive to any or all of the three months prior to application, if the individual would have been eligible during the retroactive period. Coverage generally stops at the end of the month in which a person’s circumstances change. Most states have additional “state-only” programs to provide medical assistance for specified people with limited incomes and resources who do not qualify for the Medicaid program. No Federal funds are provided for state-only programs.”

Did that muddy up the waters for you?  It may be difficult on any given day to step in front of a lot of accomplished people and say those words, but it must be what was thought.  What the definition is trying to say is that you are eligible from the minute you filled out the application if you find out afterwards that the situation was questionable.

As soon as your condition changes, for the better, you will be taken out of Medicaid as you are no longer in need of its services.  However, if the Federal Government refuses payment you can look in to the state run program where you are from.  State run programs are often more likely to give to those in their community over all others in the grand scheme of things..
