Information About Medicaid

Since you are not eligible now for SSI, you are also not eligible for Medicaid based on SSI. However, if you need help with medical bills, you may still be eligible for medical assistance. Also, you may be eligible for Medicaid for the months we paid you SSI. Contact the local Department of Social Services for information about your State's medical assistance programs and your eligibility for Medicaid. When you visit that agency, please take this letter with you.  It will help the people there answer your questions.

Information About Your Payments

We are sending you a check for $3.00. This is money due you for August 1992 through October 1992.

Your Payment Is Based On These Facts

You were disabled August 1992 on.

You were living in the State of         for August 1992 on.

You have monthly income which must be considered in figuring your payment as follows:

  • Your Social Security benefits—before deductions for Medicare premiums, if any—of $610.00 for August 1992 on.

Because of your income, you are not eligible to receive SSI payments for November 1992 on.

Information About Your Back Payments

We are sending you an SSI check for $3 in December 1992. We will not count the part of this money which was due for back payments as your resource for 6 months. If the money is not spent before July 1, 1993, we will count any money left over as part of your resources. But things bought with this money may count as resources the month after they are bought. Your Social Security office can tell you which things count as resources. You cannot get SSI if the resources we count have a value of more than $2,000.00.

Things To Remember

If you think payment may be due you for earlier months or at anytime in the future, please contact us immediately. If you are not eligible to receive payment during a month before December 1993, you will have to file a new application to receive payment. Since we cannot make payments for a month before the month in which an application is filed, a delay in applying will result in a loss of payment for any months in which you are otherwise eligible.
