Eligibility Requirements for Medicaid/Medical Assistance

Medicaid/Medical Assistance planning can be helpful in obtaining eligibility for these government benefits by Pittsburgh residents, as this blog has discussed previously. There are specific income and resource requirements that a Pennsylvania resident has to meet before he or she can become eligible for Medicaid even he or she is medically needy. This is important to remember because, for many aging Pennsylvania residents, Medicaid may be the only option to help pay for long-term care.
