NOTES:  Table generally excludes Medicaid eligibility pathways available through HCBS waivers. 1These states expand aged/blind/disabled coverage beyond SSI income limits, although not all states go up to the federal maximum of 100% FPL. 2TN’s medically needy pathway is limited to pregnant women and children and does not include seniors and people with disabilities.  3Includes state plan option and comparable HCBS waivers.  4 TN does not elect the Katie Beckett option but provides waiver coverage to “medically eligible” children in households with incomes below 200% FPL, although enrollment in this pathway is currently closed except for rollovers for those losing coverage under traditional groups. 5 All states may not use § 1915(i) as an independent Medicaid eligibility pathway; instead, states can use § 1915(i) to provide HCBS to those who are eligible for Medicaid through another existing pathway.

NOTES: States generally must provide Medicaid to SSI beneficiaries (equivalent to 75% FPL in 2015) and have the option to extend the income limit for this pathway up to 100% FPL. *Ten states elect the Section 209(b) option, which allows states to use financial and non-financial eligibility criteria that differ from the federal SSI standard, as long as they are no more restrictive than the rules the state had in place in 1972.
1 Rates given are for independent living situations. 2 Table includes rates for Regions B and C. Region A income limit is $633.49 for an individual and $805.09 for a couple. All regions offer a boarding home disregard of $244.70 and shared living disregard of $404.90.  SOURCE:  KCMU Medicaid Financial Eligibility Survey for Seniors and People with Disabilities (2015).
