Texas Medicaid Application

Before filling out the 10+ page application it would be smart to complete the 20 minute short for “Should I Apply?” provided by yourtexasbenefits.com.  Here is the link to the short form – Should I Apply?

Do You Qualify or Should You Apply for Texas Medicaid in 2012 or 2013?

This is a very difficult question to answer as each individual will have their case reviewed by an actual person.  Unlike some programs that simply punch numbers into a computer you will be reviewed by a Medicaid employee.  Remember that numbers do come into play but it will not ultimately determine everything.  Before going through the application process remember that the benefits program will look at the following:

  • Money you have in savings accounts, checking accounts, stock accounts or cash
  • Money you have from jobs, employment or any type of training
  • Any type of benefits you have gotten in the past such as Medicare, Medicaid, VA Benefits, unemployment, etc
  • How much you spend on the necessities such as rent, a home payment and utilities and water
  • How much money you spend on childcare or adult care
  • Your Medical facts and history

Do not be overly concerned with one bullet point.  If you are in a tough situation financially then there is every reason to apply for Medicaid in the state of Texas.  The worst that can happen is you are denied and you get a little bit better understanding of the application process.  Filling out the short form “Should I Apply?” is suggested but you do not have to fill out this form before filing for Texas Medicaid benefits over the phone, online or through the mail.
