Every state has its own special set of guidelines for determining an individual’s eligibility and services for Medicaid. A few of the factors evaluated are disability, age, blindness, pregnancy, access to resource like bank accounts and property, and citizenship status. The income and resources are evaluated they are different in every state and among each group of people. The eligibility for children’s are determined from the child’s status and does not take the patients into consideration. For the disabled children who live are home and people who live in the nursing homes have special rules.
