Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) administers Medicaid throughout the state.
Medicaid eligibility for Texans depends on an individual’s income and assets. Income is based on yearly household income levels before taxes. For single applicants, the maximum annual income is $32,904. For couples, where both people are applying for Medicaid, the maximum household income per annum is $65,808.
Assets include bank savings, trusts, stocks, shares, bonds and additional real estate after a person’s primary home. Individuals have an asset limit of $2,000, and the limit increases to $3,000 for couples where each person claims Medicaid. For couples with only one Medicaid applicant, the non-applicant spouse has an enhanced asset limit of $148,620.
