Child Medically Needy

Children in households that do not meet the income limits for the Child Age 0-5 or Child Age 6-18 Medicaid limit may be eligible for the Child Medically Needy program. Children must be under age 18 or between age 18 and 19, in school, and expected to graduate before turning 19. Children do not have to be living with a relative.

The income and assets of adult household members who are not the parents of the child are not counted. All other eligibility factors follow the guidelines under the Medically Needy Family program.
