Aged, Blind, or Disabled
Individuals who are age 65 or older, or who are disabled, or who are blind, may be eligible for full-Medicaid health coverage. People who are not eligible for full-Medicaid health coverage because their income is over the program limits may be placed on a Medically Needy Spenddown. Under a Medically Needy Spenddown, the person must have a certain amount of medical bills before Medicaid can be approved. The amount of the medical costs necessary to qualify is different depending on household size and income. Visit CoverVA to learn about your eligibility. You can also learn more about waivers on the DMAS website's Waivers page.
