I am disabled and want to qualify for food stamps

Q) I am disabled and want to qualify for food stamps and for help with my medicare premium. What is the income level for this. Thanks

A) Most states offer coverage for people with disabilities and people below a certain income level.  You need to call or visit your state Medicaid Office and speak with a medicaid counselor regarding Medicaid coverage for yourself. (In some states you can apply online, visit your state website)




The Affordable Care Act of 2010, signed by President Obama on March 23, 2010, creates a national Medicaid minimum eligibility level of 133% of the federal poverty level.

Maximum for your 82 year old person ($11,490X133%) = $15,281.70 (if she lives alone)

Persons in family/household Poverty guideline
For families/households with more than 8 persons, add $4,020 for each additional person.
1 $11,490
2 $15,510
3 $19,530
4 $23,550
