Automatic Eligibility  

Individuals who qualify for certain cash assistance programs automatically qualify for Medicaid without a separate application. If cash assistance ends, the Medicaid may be continued if the individual meets the eligibility criteria for another type of Medicaid. The programs which include automatic Medicaid are:

  • Work First Family Assistance for families with children
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for elderly, blind and disabled individuals
  • State/County Special Assistance (SA) assistance for payment of rest home expenses for elderly, blind and disabled individuals
