Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Which current medical groups will not follow MAGI methodology?

The new MAGI income and household rules will not apply to all Medicaid groups. We call these the "non-MAGI" populations. Non-MAGI groups include: individuals over age 65, individuals receiving long-term care services, individuals with disability based Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients, foster care youth, newborns born to Medicaid mothers, the Medically Needy, and Medicare Savings Program participants.

If you need help applying for or renewing Medicaid, or if you have questions about these benefits, please call District Direct at (202) 727-5355.
