Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
For purposes of determining what a household is under Medicaid, if one senior can claim the other as a dependent, then the two will be a household. But if each person pays their own expenses and share of the rent and utilities then they will not be determined to be a household of two---but 2 households of one person each for Medicaid purposes.
So, yes, 2 elderly people may share a residence and still qualify for Medicaid based solely on their own income.
