What is a deductible? Are there deductibles under medicaid?
N.C. General Assembly has established income limits, which county departments of social services use in determining eligibility for Medicaid. These limtis are based on the number of persons in a family. [ If the income of the family is more than the amount set by the General Assembly, there will be a deductible.
Medicaid eligibility is determined for a six-month period. This period is called
a certification period. The amount of the deductible is determined by subtracting the monthly income limit from the family's countable monthly income. That amount is multiplied by six. The result is the deductible for the certification period.
The certification period usually begins with the month that you apply for Medicaid. A case with a deductible is not eligiible for Medicaid coverage of medical expenses until the deductible is met.
