may be the only health care program available to you both, until you qualify for Medicare. In order to be eligible for Medicaid, you have to have low income and few assets (other than your house and car). The exact rules regarding income vary from state to state, but if your only income is your disability check and your wife's seasonal job, you may qualify, especially if you also have regular medical bills. To find out what the rules are in your state, and to learn where to apply, go online to any search engine and enter the word Medicaid and the name of your state. Or, you can call the Eldercare Locator toll-free at 800-677-1116.
