EMA Financial Eligibility
This subchapter provides financial policy information that applies to Emergency Medical Assistance (EMA). This includes eligibility factors that involve a person’s income or assets.
A person must meet the financial eligibility requirements for their Medical Assistance (MA) basis of eligibility at application and renewal. However, sponsor deeming does not apply to EMA.
- MA for Families With Children and Adults (MA-FCA) Bases of Eligibility
- MA for People Who Are Age 65 or Older and People Who Are Blind or Have a Disability (MA-ABD) Bases of Eligibility
People who are not eligible for EMA because they are over the income limit for their basis of eligibility and who have medical expenses may be eligible for EMA with a spenddown.
This subchapter includes links to the MA-ABD and MA-FCA financial eligibility policies. Also included is a link to the TEFRA option for children who have a disability and household income above the income limit.
