Attorneys Representing Families on PA Medicaid and Asset Protection


PA Medicaid provides payment for health care services on behalf of eligible low-income persons and individuals with limited income and high medical expenses.

Pennsylvania Medicaid Payments are made directly to the health care providers. In some cases, persons may qualify for payment of medical services that were provided up to three months before the month in which a Medicaid application was completed.

Anyone who receives the following benefits is automatically eligible for Medicaid without filing a separate application:

  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • General Assistance (GA)
  • Refugee Cash Assistance
  • State Blind Pension
  • State Subsidized Adoption
  • Title IV-E Foster Care
  • Received TANF for at least three months of the previous six months prior to losing eligibility because of an increase in income from employment or the receipt of child support. Medicaid under these circumstances is limited to not more than 12 months for employment income and not more than 4 months due for support.

Those not listed above need to complete and submit an application for Pennsylvania Medicaid.

How PA Medicaid Works

PA Medicaid recipients receive an ACCESS card, which is presented to medical providers who accept Medicaid payment for services. Recipients who live in counties in which managed care is mandatory also receive an identification card, which carries the name of the health maintenance organization (HMO) they have selected. The HMO and ACCESS cards are presented to approved providers for services. Information on the ACCESS card is also used by providers to determine if a recipient is eligible for medical services.
