How much money can a person have in the bank and still qualify for Medicaid?

This is going to be a long answer, sorry.
IT depends on your age,whether you are single or a couple,and if your state has a medicaid program you qualify for.The Category called Aged,Blind,Disabled is one of the few programs for adults without children in their households. You have to be either 65 yrs or older or Blind or Disabled .That means that Social Security has to already establish you as being disabled.You can qualify at 65 yrs and have no health problems as long as you meet the income and resource limits. The resource limits for a single person is 6,680 and a couple is 10,020.The income limit is 903 for a single and 1215 for a couple. This is the standards for the state of South Carolina. Go to your state medicaid website and look at their programs.They may have a program you qualify for. Also if you feel you are disabled or your doctor has told you this, Medicaid can also assist you with this and it is possible for the Medicaid medical unit in the state office to review your medical disability and deem you approved for medicaid until social security establishes you the same.
Income is what money you make or receive each month. Resource is what you own,have in bank,stocks,bonds,bank accounts...etc
Hope this helps.
