How much income can I make and qualify for Medicaid?
Since Medicaid varies from state to state, Florida is unique in that it actually prevents someone from obtaining Medicaid if their income is too high. For example, in 2016 the income cap in our state is $2,199. If you make more than that for gross income, you will be barred from obtaining Medicaid eligibility. But there are solutions, such as a qualified income trust or a [Miller 00:00:30] trust or what is also known as an income-cap trust. Those are things that can be put in place at the moment you may need Medicaid and have over the income cap from your gross income.
