This program lets you get Medicaid benefits even if your income is over the Medicaid program guidelines. It lets you spend down your income so that you meet the Medicaid income limits. The spend-down amount is different for each person and is any income amount that is over the Medicaid limit.
To get Medicaid benefits, you must submit current paid or unpaid medical bills equal to or greater than your monthly spend-down amount. Once your medical bills reach this amount, you will get Medicaid coverage for the remainder of the calendar month. While using Medicaid to pay for your medical expenses, you should use a healthcare provider that participates in the Medicaid program.
