Eligibility:
Your "share of cost" is the amount of medical bills that you must have before Medicaid can pay any of your other incurred medical bills for you. Your "share of cost" works like a deductible on a health insurance policy. Your "share of cost" is based on your family's monthly income. Your "share of cost" may be "estimated" based on your statement of your family's monthly income. You must incur medical expenses equal to the amount of your "share of cost" each month before you can become eligible for Medicaid for the rest of the month.
