Benefits for Adults without Dependent Children
Medicaid is accepting applications from low-income adults without dependent children (AwDC).
To be eligible for the program you must:
Earn approximately $95 or less a month for a single adult ($129 for a married couple)
NOTE: Some earned income is not counted in determining eligibility.
Be ages 19-64

AwDC enrollment is limited and there is currently a waitlist. However, individuals who are on the waitlist will be randomly selected for enrollment on a monthly basis if there is availability. Please refer to the AwDC Expansion Eligibility & Enrollment FAQs for more details on the application and enrollment process.
There are monthly Advisory Committee meetings. These are held on the first Wednesday of each month and are open to the public.
