We can help with:

1. A Medicaid on site Application

This refers to the process of competing an application for ongoing (as opposed to short-term) Medicaid for low income families, children under 19, pregnant women, and women and men who are seeking family planning services.

2. Presumptive Eligibility

This is a short-term (up to 30 days) determination for Medicaid coverage for children and age 19 or for pregnant women. We "presume" the client's statement regarding citizenship and income is true and correct.

3. QMB/SLIMB

We can help with filling out a Medicaid Application for:

  • Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries (QMB), and
  • Specified Low Income Medicare Beneficiaries (SLIMB).

Under QMB, you must have or be eligible for Medicare part A (Hospital Insurance). Medicaid will pay your Medicare premiums, deductibles, and co-insurance charges on Medicare covered services only. Medicaid will not cover dental, vision or prescription drugs.

Under SLIMB, you must have Medicare part A. Medicaid will pay your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premium only.

4. Re-Certification

We also assist clients with renewing their Medicaid applications. It is important renewals are submitted annually before the deadline so there is no lapse in Medicaid coverage.

Holy Cross Hospital's Enrollment Specialists are happy to help you and your family get enrolled in Medicaid.
