Medicare/Medicaid Application

Apply at the center.

Individuals who are recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are automatically eligible for Medicaid on the basis of their eligibility for that cash assistance program.

Basic Medicaid eligibility requirements are governed by the policies of the related cash assistance programs. As a general rule, policies of the AFDC program in place on July 16, 1996, apply to Medicaid determinations for families and children, while policies of the SSI program apply to Medicaid determinations for the aged, blind, and disabled.
