I'm Anne I've been preparing taxes for 27 years and it will be my pleasure to help you today.
The SSI income is not counted to determine eligibility for Community Medicaid. If the SSI recipient is seeking Medicaid to pay for nursing facility care, SSI is reduced to $30 a month.(This is for future reference)
It is important to note that if SSA denies SSI disability for any reason other than
lack of disability, you may still apply and be eligible for Medicaid. Your application will be submitted to a unit to determine your disability. The disability criteria used is generally the same as SSA's.
So, the answer to your question "is your son still eligible for Medicaid", the answer should be "yes"
I say should be, because I've been doing this job too long to ever speak for a government run program (IRS, SSA, etc)
However, now that you know that he SHOULD still be eligible for Medicaid, I personally would check. There are ways to check without having to go through any red tape at SSA. You (or he) can call his primary physician and see what they have on file, or you can call the pharmacy where he gets most of his medication and have them check what's on his file for him.
You would only need to contact SSA if you find out there's been a change.
