DISABILITY / MEDICAID

 Begin at DFCS (262-3200) IF: you are over 65 or blind, or if you have been turned down by Social Security.  Take proof of ineligibility at Social Security.  In some cases DFCS can assist on a month by month basis if you have been hospitalized or have unusually high medical bills over a short period of time.  Ask about their “hospital Medicaid” or QMB / spend-down program.  There are many different kinds of Medicaid.

In other cases, begin at Social Security (1-800-772-1213).  Call and make an appointment.  Terminal patients with a short life expectancy can ask for “Teri-case status” and they will be given preferential treatment.  (You will need written verification from your physician in order to be classified as Teri-case.)  It will speed up the process if you have your medical records available at the time of your appointment.  Your eligibility worker will need specific medical records, such as lab results, reports from surgery, pathology, and other specialties.  They will need medical proof of your diagnosis.  If you are turned down for help, which is very common, you have the right to appeal the decision within a limited time period.  If you are approved for disability, you will still need to apply for Medicaid.
