Medicaid Program in West Bloomfield

There are many families and individuals in West Bloomfield and throughout the United States who rely on Medicaid to provide them with healthcare and related services, as well as prescription medications and necessary medical supplies. Numerous senior citizens access long-term care with the help of Medicaid, and Michigan has several Medicaid programs that have been created to help them do that. Together with the state plan, these programs cover costs such as assisted living, nursing care and home care services. 

To qualify for Michigan’s state Medicaid plan as an elderly person, applicants need to be at least 65 years of age and meet the following income requirements:

  • Single applicants’ income may not exceed $1,041 per month, and they’re allowed to own a maximum of $2,000 in countable assets
  • Married applicants’ income may not exceed $1,409 per month, and they’re allowed to own a maximum of $3,000 in countable assets

All income received by an applicant is counted toward their eligibility; however, if only one spouse is applying for Medicaid, only the applicant’s income is counted. Some assets are exempt, such as the applicant’s home, a single vehicle and personal belongings such as household furnishings and clothing. While Michigan does have these income and asset limits in place, it does allow those who exceed the limits to spend down their income to pay medical bills prior to counting it towards eligibility requirements.

Additionally, when a married applicant is applying for Medicaid independently, they may transfer up to $123,600 worth of countable assets to their spouse to meet asset limitations. It’s advised that any applicant who doesn’t meet the requirements of the state plan should contact a professional Medicaid planner. To apply for the state Medicaid plan, seniors can complete an application online. For assistance with applications, they can call the MI Bridges help desk at (844) 799-9876.

Medicaid Waivers in West Bloomfield

MI Choice Waiver

The MI Choice waiver is a Home and Community-Based Services waiver that helps elderly and disabled individuals access long-term care outside of nursing homes.

Participants of this waiver are eligible for the same services that are covered by the state Medicaid plan, as well as additional long-term care services such as nursing services, respite care, adult day care, home delivered meals, home modifications, counseling and community transition services. 

To be eligible for this waiver, applicants must require a nursing level of care. To qualify as a senior, they must be 65 years of age or older. Those under 65 must be legally disabled to qualify. Financially, applicants are restricted to a maximum income of $2,313 per month and $2,000 in countable assets ($3,000 for married couples). Waiver programs are not entitlement-based, which means that only a certain number of participants are approved for coverage. As such, there are usually waiting lists for those who are approved for coverage. 

To apply, seniors living in West Bloomfield can contact the Detroit Area Agency on Aging at (313) 446-4444. More information can be found on our MI Choice Waiver page.
