Medical Assistance for People Who Are Age 65 or Older and People Who Are Blind or Have a Disability
Medical Assistance (MA) eligibility is determined using a variety of non-financial, financial and post-eligibility factors. Some MA policies apply to all MA applicants and enrollees. Other eligibility requirements are different, depending on what type of MA a person may be eligible for.
This subchapter includes policies that apply to MA for People Who Are Age 65 or Older and People Who Are Blind or Have a Disability (MA-ABD) and links to policies that apply to all MA programs and all Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) programs.
In depth information about statewide services is available from mnhelp.info. Specialized assistance for seniors is available from the Senior Linkage Line at 800-333-2433 and for people with disabilities from the Disability Linkage Line at 866-333-2466.
