Can a person have both Medicaid and Medicare?

Medicare covers the elderly and people with certain disabilities and end-stage renal disease regardless of income level. Medicaid eligibility is for the poor and is based on low income, family size and a few other requirements. Actually, they can. You only have to be poor and disabled, unable to work..that equals poor. You qualify for both. I know a few people who have both. It is pretty common for people to have Medicaid and Medicare. This is called dual eligible. The above answer is correct in that a person must be elderly or disabled to qualify, and because a disabled person is not eligible to work they more usually qualify for Medicaid. Of course this depends on other income (ie. spousal income), and any assets. Medicare is federal program so the eligibility is the same in every state, Medicaid however is a state program so eligibility will depend on the state your daughter resides in.

Does private insurance cover Alzheimer's disease?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people age 65 or older who are receiving Social Security retirement benefits. There are specific eligibility requirements in order for a person to receive assistance from this program. Medicare covers some, but not all, of the services a person with Alzheimer's disease may require. Medicaid is a federal program for certain individuals and families with low incomes and resources, administered by each state, so eligibility and benefits vary from state to state. The program is typically administered by a state agency. Medicaid can cover all or a portion of nursing home costs. A person with Alzheimer's can qualify for long-term care only if he has minimal income and cash assets. Medicaid may be applied for by calling your state's Department of Human Services or Medicaid Assistance Program.
