Answer: TRUE

Indiana has a health care program for working people with disabilities called M.E.D. Works, which stands for Medicaid for Employees with Disabilities. People with disabilities do not have to fear losing their health care benefits under Medicaid just because they get a job, get a raise, or work more hours. M.E.D. Works members, may pay a small monthly premium based on their income; however, this is much smaller than most commercial insurance plans.

Who Is Eligible?

To be eligible for M.E.D. Works, you must:

  • be aged 16-64;
  • countable income at or below 350%FPL
  • maximum $2000 (single) or $3000 (married) in resources
  • be disabled according to Indiana’s definition of disability; and
  • be working.
