Can I enroll in Medicaid through Maryland Health Connection on the basis of being aged, blind, disabled, living in a nursing home, or medically needy, or apply for the QMB or SLMB programs?

No. Different income standards apply to individuals seeking coverage on the basis of being aged, blind, disabled, living in a nursing home, or medically needy, and those applying for the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary Program (QMB) or the Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary Program (SLMB).

These individuals cannot apply for benefits using MarylandHealthConnection.gov. Please contact your local department of social services for more information or apply online at myDHRbenefits.dhr.state.md.us.
