Understanding Medicaid Buy-in: A Tool to Advance Employment for People with Disabilities

medicaid buy in

The Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) have released a new question and answer [JS1] document to help grantees, stakeholders, and self-advocates better understand the Medicaid buy-in program. The Medicaid buy-in program includes Medicaid eligibility groups that serve workers with disabilities who are earning income and whom states may charge premiums as a condition of Medicaid eligibility.
The Q&A has been released as the country celebrates the 29th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) this week.
