Can an individual who is age 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare also be eligible for Medicaid?

Yes; if you are 65 or older and receiving Medicare, and you meet certain income and asset limits, you may apply for a Medicaid program to help low-income Medicare recipients. You can apply for these programs (Qualified Medicare Beneficiary or Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary) at a local Department of Social Services office.
