CHA Helps Working People with Disabilities Enroll in a Special Medicaid Program.

Show this story   Hide this story  

Otis is proud that he can work despite having a disability. He is enrolled in the Medicaid Buy-In Program for Working People with Disabilities. This program allows disabled workers to enroll in Medicaid, even if their income is higher than the usual Medicaid limits. Due to an administrative error, Otis lost his Medicaid coverage. A CHA Advocate at the Independent Living Center of the Hudson Valley worked to resolve the issue. Now Otis is back on Medicaid.

“Whatever issues you have regarding health insurance, you will definitely receive help if you come to CHA. The service from my Advocate was excellent, and I would not have had my Medicaid issues fixed otherwise.” – Otis Williams, Rensselaer County
