Medicaid Benefit Designed for People Who are Aged, Blind or Disabled
Ohio Medicaid offers programs for older individuals and persons with disabilities to help with medical bills. To qualify for Aged, Blind or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid, one must be:
- Age 65 or older, or
- Considered legally blind, or
- Classified by the Social Security Administration as a person with a disability, and
- Meet the basic requirements
Proof of income, resources, age or disability, citizenship and other health insurance is required. A face-to-face interview is not required in Montgomery County, and applicants can ask an authorized representative to apply on their behalf.
The Medicaid resource limit is now $2,000 a month for individuals and $3,000 for married couples. The home you reside in, one car and your household possessions are exempt resources. Your case worker will determine which items are counted or exempted.
