Thinking About Work

 

Medicaid

There is, and has been for many years, a way for a person with a disability who is working to retain his/her health benefits (1619 b section of Social Security). It works as long as the worker is still considered “disabled” until income reaches a level determined by the state. Some of the Medicaid benefits vary from state to state as some of the states offer different subsidies.
 
Today with the Affordable Care Act, there are a number of insurances that can be used by working people. These also vary by state. If the worker is employed enough hours, they may be offered health benefits by the employer (Medicaid).
