One essential criteria to qualify for Houston Medicaid nursing home benefits is income eligibility. For a Houston Medicaid applicant that is married, the income limit for 2009 is $4,044 each month.

If the applicant and the applicant’s spouse has monthly income less than $4,044 then the applicant has established his income eligibility and can move on to the next step of winning Houston Medicaid nursing home benefits.

If the applicant and the applicant’s spouse has monthly income above that amount then they fail the income test. If you have been denied Houston Medicaid nursing home benefits because your income was too much, a Houston Medicaid Attorney may be able to help you create income eligibility with advanced legal techniques depending on your unique facts.

The income eligibility limit is redetermined each year and is subject to change. is your resource to find an experienced Texas Medicaid Attorney who can help you find the right nursing home, get the best care, and pay for it all without going broke. We are currently focused on Harris and Montgomery Counties, including the areas of Houston, Conroe, The Woodlands, Spring, Tomball, Humble, and Katy.
