Medicaid Buy-In for Workers with Disabilities (MBIWD)


If you have a disability and are working, this program may provide you with health care benefits. In some situations, working and earning money could prevent you from getting public benefit programs such as Medicaid. This program allows you to work and still keep your health care coverage. However, you may need to pay a monthly premium.

How do I apply?

To apply for this program, you can print and fill out the Application Form, Application Addendum, and Consumer Rights & Responsibilities Form. If you have questions, you can call the Medicaid Consumer Hotline at: (800) 324-8680. For TTY, please dial: (800) 292-3572.
