Medicaid Eligibility Factsheet for Women


I. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

The pregnant woman must be a Kansas resident. In addition, she must be a U.S. citizen or a qualified alien.

II. RESOURCES

No resource test is applicable.

III. INCOME

The earned and unearned income of the pregnant woman and the father of the unborn child (if in the home) must be considered. This includes wages, unemployment benefits, Social Security (except SSI) and VA benefits, and child support. Unearned income is counted in full. A $200 work expense deduction is allowed for each employed person.

IV. INCOME STANDARD

The monthly countable income obtained above is compared to the standards listed below, which are based on family size. Family size is determined by including the pregnant woman, the unborn child, and the father of the unborn child (if in the home). If the pregnant woman is a minor and living with her parents, the family size shall also include the parents.  If the income is below the appropriate standard, the woman would qualify for Medicaid.
