What are the eligibility requirements for Medicaid in your state? Are they both eligible for Medicaid in your state?

Recent eligibility requirements for Mei-Cal expansion are that for Californians under age 65 and without children is their annual income must be lower than 138% of the Federal Poverty Level (PAL). All individuals above 65 are eligible. All individuals with disabilities are eligible. Both the female at age 62 and the male at 72 are eligible for Mei-Cal because given she is under 65, it’s likely her part-time waitress income qualifies her at less than 138% PAL since he is not working. He is both over 65 and is in rehab recovering from a stroke which would qualify him as disabled. (Mei-Cal Expansion, 2016)
