What is the difference between Medicaid and Medicare?

Medicare is a federal program that is available through Social Security and is an insurance policy that you pay as a deduction from your Social Security check. Medicaid is a state program that is based on income eligibility. All recipients of SSI automatically receive Medicaid. Kansas also offers Medicaid Buy-In to persons who are returning to work.

How do I qualify for Medicaid?

The application process starts at your Kansas Social & Rehabilitation Services office. The application gathers your income and assessment information, along with some general information about your household. For technical assistance with the application process, contact the SKIL office nearest you or call 1-800-688-5616.

What are the “spend down requirement” and the “client obligation”?

There are specific asset limits and income restrictions for persons receiving Medicaid. When you qualify for the program, this will be explained. Upon enrollment, you may have to reduce your assets to maintain benefits. The spend down is to dwindle your assets on medical expenses over a six month period. The client obligation is a monthly payment you make to meet the Medicaid requirements if you exceed the income limitations.
